Allergic to headgear?

Has anyone had sores develop on scalp where back of headgear stays as you sleep? If so, what can i do?
Hello, Marcell. Welcome to Apnea Board.
I used the Wisp mask Feb.-May of this year. No problems with the headgear, but I am familiar with it.
First, how many nights have you worn the mask? How many nights before you noticed the sores on your scalp?
Does the headgear feel uncomfortably tight?
I also found an old post from this board where it sounds like someone else was having a similar problem. http://www.apneaboard.com/forums/Thread-...This-Issue

can you cut the toe out of a sock and slide it over the back strap? Make sure you don't have the straps too tight, this is a common problem that causes all kinds of issues.

WELCOME! to the forum.!
I haven't had that problem so I'm not able to answer your question.
Much success to you with your CPAP therapy, hang in there for more responses to your post.
