If you have the house heat on, it could just be the air is dryer. You may need to bump the humidifier up a bit.
Also, if this is the first time you have used the mask, there *may* be a bit of stuff in the mask that you are sensitive to. I hate new masks fresh out of the box and plastic. They always have an odd smell to them. When I get a new mask, I set up the machine and turn it on for a few hours to help get the stink out.
We have electric heat in our house and it can be adjusted in each room. When you advise bumping up the humidifier a bit, are you referring to the humidifier on the S9? Sorry for a dumb question, I've just had the worse headache most of the day and it is hard to think straight. Plus I got woke up at 5:00 a.m. by a "wrong number"
