I use my humidifier faithfully. Lately, my nose is beyond dry. I have it set on 80. Should I increase this? Has anyone else had this issue? If so, what did you do? FYI, I live on the west coast and not near the ocean.
I do use AYR when I think about it but would like to have the humidifier setting where it is all I need on a daily basis rather than using AYR daily as well. I may have to use it but if I can find another solution, that would be ideal for me!!
Thanks for any ideas
I think we've all experienced dry nose on CPAP. I do periodically.
My humidifier is turn up quite high; and my Hi4 tank is near dry by morning.
I have occasionally used Vasoline in my nostrils to keep in moisture.
Seems to vary by season, ambient temperature and relative humidity.
The AYR nasal gel is a good idea. I think I'll pick some up.
I tried nasal irrigation with saline solution -- seemed to make things worse.
