Thanks for the input.
Sleeprider, I did try the pillows for two weeks and was miserable for the most part, even with chinstrap they didn't work well for me, that's why I switched to the full mask adviced by my doctor. I guess for some people they work wonders and for some they don't...sadly I'm in the second group. Thank you anyway.
Sweat is all over, but it might be coming from the mask seal...I think I'll try the liners as justMongo suggests, hopefully they'll help
If the sweat is all over (inside the mask area), then the humidity temperature may be too high.
Question: Is their moisture inside the mask and inside the hose?
(It might be difficult to see inside the hose as I think you have a climateline hose.)
Do try try mask liners; as I'm sure you can get free samples from the reps in that thread I posted above.
You might try using a standard hose. That will preclude using auto humidity; and force you to use a manual setting.

IMHO the airsense auto mode is pretty high, some love it that humid. It may be that with the seasonal humidity and the CPAP humidifier you are just getting too warm and sweating. You can try out humidity settings during the day and figure out how to set them and what they feel like.
Remember the humidity level and the main source for temperature is caused by the temperature of the water in the tank-this is only set by the humidity setting. The temperature setting is for the hose temperature to prevent rainout if you sleep in a cold/cool room. So adjust the humidity setting to what you are comfortable with and does not overheat you, then adjust the temperature so you don't get condensation in the mask and tube.
WELCOME! to the forum.!
Good luck to you with your CPAP therapy and hopefully, the liners will help.
Welcome! A small point, but don't forget to clean the mask every day. Might just make the difference. I take mine in the shower and shampoo it along with my hair. It loves that! Hang it on the fixture and it's ready to go come nighttime.
