Does anyone have suggestions about how to eliminate redness on the bridge of the nose from a quattro mask?

You can put a bandaid across the bridge of your nose or try a breathe right strip. You can also try different masks until you find one that doesn't irritate your nose.

If you are able to use a nasal mask, the ResMed Mirage FX for Her is really good. It is small and lightweight and sits lower on the bridge of the nose. It is also good if you are a side sleeper since it doesn't stick out very far so it doesn't "crash" into the pillow when you turn over, which typically causes leaks in other masks.

I had the same problem. I had to stop using my quattro it got so bad. The suggestions you've received have been good one. Pad the bridge of the nose, the mask, or try the FX. Good luck, it's a real problem if it gets out of hand.
