Nasal Irritation iwth Nasal Pillows...
#11
I had one set of Nuance pillows that made one nostril, just right on the cusp of inside/outside, on the bottom, it was making it sore. I was constantly trying to make it heal. I finally switched to the next size up until I got the next order in and the sore went away. Sometimes I think a pillow can have a fault in it or something. Had the same problem with another mask a long time ago.

If you are just starting using them, it could just be simple irritation from having the air blow in. Or it could be a pimple. Or it could be where the aliens stick the probe.

I had never really heard of bacitracin until now, but it's one of the ingredients of triple antibiotic, or Neosporin. I looked it up, and it is not recommended for use near mouth, or nose. You know, wash with water if contact occurs. Lots of cautions listed. May be better when concentration reduced in Neosporin, though. Think I will try the other things mentioned, cause I am sure I will need it next week with new nasal pillows on order.

The main reason I changed from P10 to Nuance was because of straps more so than pillows.

Oops, Sorry Gabby, I meant that question for OP Fishing Bob.
Glad yours are just right size!
