I use the Lanolin Cream and sometimes switch off and use the Ayr gel.

The other night, woke up with my eyes bothering me, so thought I'd use eye ointment before going back to bed.....grabbed what I thought was eye ointment, but was Ayr gel and put it in my eyes. Sad

Luckily, it didn't burn, just felt cool. That's what I get for doing things in the dark.

RE: Nasal Pillow Irritating Nose
I am having the same issue with the P10. Never thought I would like booger hole plug masks and after using one for a couple of weeks, I am beginning to suspect I will retire back to nasal mask after healing up from surgery that is scheduled next week (MOHS surgery right at the edge of my nose and eyelid where the nasal mask cushion rides). Meanwhile, I said "screw it" and went back to the Swift FX nasal mask that I have used very successfully for a few years now.

I started wit the L size Booger Hole Plug interface, but that was not really comfortable. Then I switched back to the M size and it was a little better, but by morning, my nose still hurt. I had been on the S size Booger Hole Plugs for about 4 nights, and they have resolved about 50-60% off the discomfort issue.

You mean your supposed to put the P-10's in your nose???

I kept trying to put them in my eyes like binoculars!

No wonder my vision didn't improve! Humpfffff...
