Lansinoh---Does it Damage mask insert?

Lansinoh---Does it Damage mask insert?
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.

I had not heard of it so I looked it up and all I fond here was a cream for breast feeding mothers?   Thinking-about 

Someone give me a link to it please. Dont-know

This might be a stupid question, why do you need it for your nose then?   Dont-know

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
