Many hearing aids are water resistant, not waterproof. Although hearing aids are durable and can handle moisture such as sweat or a little rain, you should do your best to keep your hearing aids dry. Never wear your devices in the shower or swimming. And always be sure to wipe them down with a dry cloth if they get wet.
Some types of hearing loss are preventable. Noise-induced hearing loss can be avoided by wearing proper hearing protection when exposed to loud noises, either occupationally or recreationally. To prevent other types of hearing loss, avoid sticking cotton swabs or other objects in your ears and avoid medications that could harm your hearing.
