How Wearing Masks Affects People With Hearing Aids and Your Skin

Spike in COVID-19 cases leads to emergency plasma shortage, Oxford vaccine shows promise, research shows an increase in Broken Heart Syndrome during the pandemic, and children are regressing in time of COVID-19.

It's no question that masks are here to stay, for at least the next few months. But what does wearing cloth on your face do to your skin? And how can you keep it healthy and clear while doing your part to fight the virus?

Dr. Stacy Chimento is a dermatologist in Miami, Florida, and joined us to talk about skincare in the age of COVID-19.

For some with hearing aids, masks have even affected their hearing. Global audiology company, Signia, has created a specialized mask setting to account for the audio impact of mask-wearing. The aids also come with a robust new "Remote Care" system that helps keep wearers from having to go into doctors' offices to get their settings adjusted.

We talk to audiologist Dr. Tish Ramirez about these advances in hearing technology during the pandemic.
