Post: #6RE: Help with Humidity Level on S9/H5i
I am waking in the morning with the FF mask stuck to my face. It leaves a red mark around my mouth and cheeks.
I think I now have a slight fungal infection around my chin.
I switched off the humidifier and went back to the non heated hose but I was still damp this morning though not so bad as before.
It doesn't seem to be caused by a tight mask but more by condensation in the mask.
Bedroom temp about 13C.
Anyone got any ideas.
G'day John. Can you tell us what settings you're using on the humidifier? Generally speaking the heated hose should avoid this kind of problem.
If not, try using a mask liner - these are made of cloth and sit between the silicon and your skin. I have a Pad-a-cheek which I find pretty good, while other members swear by Remzzz.
