RE: AirFit P10
What kind of mask is the Eason? I tried to look for it but couldn't find it. If it is not a nasal pillows mask, then it is just the switch from one type of mask to the other. If it is a nasal pillow then it could be as simple as the P10 hits the inside of your nostrils differently, causing a mild irritation which causes your nose to run in response.

Try doing a nasal rinse before hand. I use the Ayr bottle with the Neill Med premade mix packets. Easy to mix and use. Others use the Neti pot.

RE: AirFit P10
Hi uweti, welcome to the forum and the world of CPAP.
So pleased you are feeling benefits of using it already, how lucky are you.
I use the P10 and have not had those problems you talk about so sorry I am unable to help you.
I hope you are able to get it sorted as it really is a great mask.
Good luck!

RE: AirFit P10
Paula O2, The mask I use is a Fisher and Paykel Eason nasal mask over the nose. They have a website and youtube and you can check it out there but I didnt link to it, not sure yet what is allowed. Thanks for the suggestions.

Gabby, thank you for the welcome and encouragement!

RE: AirFit P10
Okay, I found it. It is the Eson.

Since you switched from a nasal mask to a nasal pillows, then it is most likely just the switch in types of mask. Try the nasal rinse, even just a saline nasal spray, to see if that helps.

If it continues, then it may not work for you. You could try another size pillow to see if the different size aims it in a different spot and doesn't irritate as bad. Another nasal pillow to try would be the Nuance. It doesn't go inside the nostril exactly so it might be a little better. Not sure, though.

RE: AirFit P10
P10 headgear is sold as integral to the mask so you get 'mask & headgear'.

Truth is (as those who have one know) the P10 is a "mask" only by convention.

It's really a little platform with exhaust, plus head gear and light pigtail hose attached, plus a snap on for the pillows.

It's the 'thong' of masks.

BTW, the new masks FEELS "just right" but is actually tight enough my nose is irritated again.

The loose, stretched out old one is probably a better fit even though the new one 'feels right' when you put it on.

RE: AirFit P10
I'm using the P10, loved it and used the large size, but now I'm getting a sore at the base of my right nostril (on the left part). It started with a discomfort that gradually got worse. Frustrating, as I'll probably need to switch back to a nasal mask. I tried medium, but it hurts as much. I wonder if it is from lying on my side, where the straps slip back from friction against the pillow and tighten too much, pulling up the mask.

That happened to me on the left side when I first started using the P10.
I put a piece of cottonwool between the nose and the mask ever night for a couple of weeks just to stop the rubbing and until my nose healed. One night I forgot to place it there and noticed I had no problems and haven't had since.
It is worth a shot.
Good luck.

Thanks Gabby. That is worth a try and beats switching back to a nasal mask!

RE: AirFit P10
I started with a small P10 pillows but have gone to the medium - leaks are much less now. I had some nose irritation at first but persevered with that and after several weeks it is now not a problem for me. I used a very small bit of Amolin cream on the irritation in the morning from time to time.
