RE: Burning Nose
I am glad that you are feeling better, but keep the humidifier turned on aand the tank full so that it can't run dry. The secretions in your eye are being forced up from your nose via your tear ducts that enter your nose. In a day or two, your nose will probably be better even after turning off the CPAP in the morning. The matted eyes should then be gone, too. Is nice to know this isn't an allergy and is preventable.

Jerks!!!

The only reason I thought of this Paula was that plastic is somewhat porous and will over time absorb trace amounts of substances like cleaning solvents and the like. Vinegar being an acid, once all the water is gone the plastic probably heats up a few degrees more than normal and you could be breathing old acid fumes... and you being under the weather already...well...it kinda fit.

My eyes water like crazy and glue shut overnight all the time, but it is definitely worse in allergy season. I asked the eye doc and he said it was because I have dry eye! Huh? Okay, whatever. He said to use eye drops and gave me a few choices, but I never followed up. I just deal with it. But the point being that there are eye drops OTC that are just like the saline spray for your nose, nothing in them that is medicated. I already use Antihistamine drops when my allergies kick up so that is enough for me! Smile

As always, YMMV! You do not have to agree or disagree, I am not a professional so my mental meanderings are simply recollections of things from my own life.

RE: Burning Nose
Yes, I either use a regular eye lubricant drop or saline they have for contact lenses. During allergy season, if it is really bad, I use an allergy drop. No clue what the name of it is.

I am awful with eye drops! I just used it about an hour ago and took me EIGHT tries to get a single drop in that eye! I have a great, patient, saintly eye doc who is fully aware of my sensitivity. (I think I must be part vampire 'cause I hate sunlight)
