My question: Is your health worth giving up your nose ring?

It's not a serious issue though. I get a great seal and sleep well with my nasal mask, it just has occasionally irritated my upper lip, but no redness or anything that I'm aware of. If I get a nasal mask, it won't be right away as I don't have private insurance so it'll be about $100 out of pocket. lol.



And Paula, I guess you're right, I'll probably have to go try them. Was just curious if anyone else had tried while wearing a stud nose ring Tongue

Nope, not worn that. Know people who do, though! Since it is just a stud, the Nuance should work.
