Nose bridge cushion ideas
I know others have talked about this problem, but I can't seem
to find it today on the forum.

I'm using a mask liner, + have pad a cheek on order. Meanwhile
my nose bridge is not looking good. Maybe I need a bandaid?
Thanks for your ideas.

Ready, try the bandaid or a small piece of material about the same size. You don't want it to get worse or it will be more painful and could get infected. Have you tried loosen the straps just a slight bit and do you have the hose coming from above your head?

RE: Nose bridge cushion ideas
The beauty departments (Costco too) sell those little round cotton disc pads that the some ladies love to use for makeup removal. I've found that you can even split them apart to make two very thin nose pads that won't lift the mask cushion either (making leaks). They're cheap, very comfortable, very thin, and the perfect size. I've found that you can even cut the disk in 1/2. The 1/2 disk is better as you don't really need to cover so much over your nose. If you go that route, buy the best ones that you can find that are made with the softest cotton as there's a quality range (just like tissues). If you want to try it first and don't have any at home, just grab one from the beauty person at the makeup counter to try it out one night.

(Sorry liner companies if I've taken away some of your liner business as a result of the tip.)

Sleep Apnea has given me a terrible memory. Please forgive me if I've repeated myself.

RE: Nose bridge cushion ideas
Wow, great ideas thank-you.

Tez62-I have tried loosening the strap, I'll try it again. The hose is usually under
The covers.
