Lansinoh---Does it Damage mask insert?
#1
I really need to use the HPA Lansinoh inside my right nostril----nothing else does the job.  My provider said not use it, might damage mask, and told me to get oxygen users cream (which didn't help, even irritated nostril further).

But I'm sure I have seen somewhere on this Forum (forgot where) people openly discussing using Lansinoh on their noses.  Is Lansinoh OK?

It doesn't hurt the pillows. That's why it's recommended here so often. Your provider is wrong.

Based on what I've heard, it is safe to use, as Walla Walla said. Not sure why the provider said not to use it, but they are not correct on this.

Even a 1,000 mile trip requires a first step. My recommended first steps are getting good shoes and 2 cups o coffee

Despite the original application, the cream is excellent at treating and soothing skin irritation, which can easily happen with nasal pillows (even with the softest gel pillows, our noses weren't made to have something rubbing them all night. ;Wink
