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

Have you tried Quattro FX ... it sit lower on the nose than the Quattro and no forehead dial

RE: Help cpap nose
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.

or a piece of Dr Scholl moleskin but if skin sensitive attach the sticky side to the mask not the nose
Maybe the cushion need replacing

RE: Help cpap 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.

RE: Help cpap nose
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.
