CPAP Mask strap causing irritation
#1
First of all thanks to everyone for all the helps. My dad's situation is improving since he started the CPAP therapy.

However, he is having too much irritation (itchiness) where the mask strap is rubbing with the skin.

The mask itself is not causing any irritation just the straps.

Did anyone faced similar situation and found a way to overcome this?

Pad-a-cheek liners from Supplier #31 might do the trick.

If you don't see what you need on their website be sure to send an email. I found out that she makes a cover for the Ruby style chin strap I use. I haven't tried it yet but plan to. It's a special order item and not on the site but she sent a document with info. and pictures when I asked.

Hi sjishan,

It's GREAT to hear that your dad is doing so well with CPAP therapy.
Both of you keep up the good work.
