Nasal mask fitting
#1
Hi!

I have been using my machine and mask for almost a month now.
I have tried different masks, and unfortunately the P10 does not fit very well.
I have now been using the N20 and Eson2, and eson is the one that fits best even when I sleep on the side.
But one thing with both masks is that the seal it self is "scratching" under my nose leaving a little wound that is almost healed to the evening, but it feels a bit annoying.
Anybody else having this issue? I have tried both small and medium size but still the same.

You might try a bit of cotton flannel under there to see if that helps.
Otherwise, there are many more masks which may be tried.

Try moving the mask down just a little so it isn't touching the bottom of your nose.

I have to play around a little with my Eson from time to time to reset the straps slightly.. I suspect the velcro on them "creeps" over a period with all the tossing and turning I do.

The Eson masks need to be fitted fairly "loose" against the face as well, particularly at the top, you may find the top part of the plastic frame need to sit up to a finger thickness out from your forehead when it is all strapped in place.

I have tried to loosing it a bit and it helped a little bit. Tonight I am trying with a smaller size that I got from my sleeping specialist that she thought would help.
