I just got the ResMed S10 with AirFit P10 nasal pillow last Wed (5 days ago).
I have been wearing the mask but can't keep it on all night, I wake up early in the morning and take it off, but only because it hurts the inside of my nose soo much. There is now a red "zit/cut" growth at the inner edge of my nasal bridge (the soft tissue not the cartridge).
I have tried all 3 pillow sizes (S, M, L) ...(was fitted with Medium initially). I have tried adjusting the straps, I have tried the Linolin lotion on the inside of my nose and outlining the nasal pillow.
Nothing seems to work.
Is this normal? What else should I try?
While all nasal pillows are designed to cause a minimum of abrasion to nose, it can happen for a variety of reasons, and each manufacturer can't always make the specs of their sizing right for each patient. While your best bet is to consider another manufacturer, another type of nasal pillow or move to a nasal mask, taking the current model in to your dermatologist might also be a solution if you are adamant about staying with the P10 - he can examine the material, the abrasion and the fit and determine the cause.
I had a worse skin reaction from using the lanolin than without.
