Hi Genetini,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
You could try turning your humidifier back a notch or two.
Hang in there for more responses to your post, good luck to you as you continue your CPAP therapy.

Agree with trish,
Turn down the settings a notch. Sounds like too much humidity.

If there is no condensation in the tubing, but only in the mask area, it is quite likely the moisture added by your nose and lungs. This is especially possible if you keep your bedroom cold. Mine is 22-23C (72-74F) and I don't usually have a problem. Sometimes in the Spring my room gets colder, and then I get a damp nose.

First, check your settings. You may have accidentally changed them. If you are on AUTO, then you might adjust the temperature setting a bit and see if that improves it.

The auto-humidity setting sensor is at the end of the hose that plugs into your mask. Mine doesn't always work right because I sleep with my face in the pillow occasionally and that probably interferes with the sensor.
