Advice on move to Full Face Mask
#11
RE: Advice on move to Full Face Mask
Hi Albigensian,

I think you are dead right.  Treat the allergies first.  Your advice re the various treatments will be so useful going forward.  When I get back from holiday I’ll set up an allergy consultation and take it from there.  In the meantime I’ll bin the 
Sinex and try the alternatives you and others suggest.

Many thanks for all your help

(Love the name by the way.  Never did understand how St Dominic got away with it)

Dear S Manz

Thank you so much for the detailed and helpful advice.  I’m hoping that controlling the allergic reaction obviates the need for another FFM.  if that doesn’t work out I’ll be straight back to your brilliant post.

Best Wishes

Alan Speed

You might try a Air Touch F20. It has foam around the face, which does a great job of handling leaks without cranking it down too much. It is actually interchangeable with the Air Fit F20 cushion. I am moving away from that style, if I can, because the top of the mask hits a sensitive place on my nose sometimes.
