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.

Hi Marcell,
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.
