Sleep On Your Side without Ear Discomfort or Pain with a Specially Designed Therapeutic Pillow with Ear Hole.

The Thera-med Holey Pillow is designed specifically to provide effective relief from CNH, pressure sores and chronic ear pain. 

It has a 12 cm hole in an off-centre position to suit a variety of neck lengths and sizes. It is also very useful for those recovering from ear surgery, ear injuries and ear piercings.

The Holey Pillow was specially designed to help with recovery of ear pain pressure sores and CNH.

    • Designed specifically for sufferers of CNH
    • Excellent for relieving discomfort from ear piercings or cartilage damage
    • Specially fitted and removable poly/cotton pillow slip
    • Australian made CNH design
    • Polyfill inner around ear hole with memory foam inserts for neck support

A Pillow with Hole for Ear Conditions Designed in Conjunction with Health Professionals.

    • CNH (Chondrodermatitis nodularis helicis)
    • Ear cartilage damage
    • Recovery from ear surgery
    • Ear piercings

Our Therapeutic CNH Holey Pillow with its polyester fibrefill prevents Chafe and Pressure Sores 

The inner fill around the ear hole is soft polyester fibre to ensure softness even if the ear does come into contact with this part of the pillow. The polyfill can be removed to lower the height of the pillow if required.

Memory foam supports

Memory foam inserts run along either side of the ear hole to provide support for the neck and shoulders while the primary function of protecting the ear is maintained.

Other strategies for managing ear pressure injuries include dressings, repositioning and ear cut-outs (made of foam). Finding a comfortable position for patients in palliative care who have ear pressure injuries can be a challenge. The Holey pillow is designed to help manage ear pressure in conjunction with these other methods.

Customer Reviews Customer Reviews

Service Rating : Once I made an inquiry, discovered the product and ordered, the parcel arrived within a couple or three days.

Product : The holey pillow has changed my sleep. I now get a full night of sleep without waking up during the night with a sore aching ear only to turn to the other side and repeat. A great find and wish I found you years ago when my skin doctor started freezing sun damage off my ears. No one knew such a product existed and perhaps you need to make yourself know to skin specialists and others.

19 Jun 2024

Service Rating : The service and delivery was okay.

Product : The cotton pillow cover is a very rough fabric, even though I've washed it. I can't use the pillow because of that. The pillow is quite thick, but it's easy enough to remove stuffing to adjust.

05 Apr 2024

Service Rating : Perfect pillow for my husband who has had extensive surgery behind and under his ear. The pillow has a hole which is perfectly placed and allows him to sleep on either his left or right side at last.

The pillow has kept its shape beautifully and has provided him with a significantly improved quality of life. We can sometimes underestimate just how important a decent night of sleep is for our health and wellbeing. This pillow ensures he now sleeps soundly and wakes up feeling refreshed.

Product : Great cotton pillowcase - quality cotton and has a funnel placed exactly where it is needed to line up with the special pillow it goes with. It is very well made with straight seams and no loose threads.

Yes you can adjust the stuffing by unzipping the cover and move the poly fill around or remove the quantity you require.

The filling is mainly polyfill with a small layer of memory foam. You may remove both the foam and some of the polyfill if you find it too firm . The Holey pillow has had great reviews from CNH sufferers.
The hole is set off centre so there is approximately an 18cm gap on one side from the edge of pillow to the hole and then on the other it is approximately 10cm. This is designed for shorter and longer necks.
The pillow is a medium feel but to soften it you should be able to remove a bit of the filling inside just by undoing the zipper and then plump up the poly inside to give it a slightly softer feel.
The steri plus version is a waterproof product that we only really recommend for hospital and places where product is being shared. For all other requirements we recommend the regular version.
