Nose thickling
Hi,
After more than a year with my CPAP, I always have my nose tickling, I wake up dozen of time during the night, and now I end up removing the mask while I sleep.
In the morning I recorded 2 to 4 hours of wearing.
I tried all kind of treatments, suck as: vinegar rubbing (smell pickles), Purell aloes, Emo-Cort ointment, allergie pills, all this to no real results.
I stopped using my CPAP for 6 weeks now and it did not change anything, still tired.
Anyone has a suggestion for my tickling nose ??? Thanks

RE: Nose thickling
I get the same problem. I just read or watch a video and eventually it stops or I stop noticing it, not sure which. But sometimes I have to stop therapy move the nasal pillows and have a good 'ol scratch!

RE: Nose thickling
I notice in your profile you are male. Perhaps an older male?

This may be way off, but I'm older..............and if I don't treat my nose hairs, well lets just leave it at that, shall we? Bag-head

BTW: Welcome

RE: Nose thickling
See your doctor, you'll need to identify the root cause of the problem
Nasal pillows mask doesn't cover the nose, have you tried them?

RE: Nose thickling
You could try nasal rinses...the kind with the sqeeze bottle. Cleans nasal passages and helps if you have stuffiness.

If you use a nasal rinse, do it several hours before bed.

Also nasal sprays are good, and Ayr nasal gel.

Hi 431jaro,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Get a nose trimmer to trim the hairs in your nostrils, that should help with the tickling.
Much success to you as you continue your CPAP therapy.
