Nose bridge skin problem

Nose bridge skin problem
Hi.. 
I'm using Resmed Airfit F20 mask, the mask is perfect in everything except that  it makes me suffer from inflammation around my nose bridge. 
Could anyone give me an advise?

RE: Nose bridge skin problem
Try putting some soft cloth between the silicone and your skin - maybe 2 or 3 layers.

RE: Nose bridge skin problem
I had similar problems with the F20. Make sure your mask is the correct size for your face. Look at ResMed's measuring advice and sizing guide here: AirFit F20: How to measure your ideal mask size at home

My face was exactly between the Medium and Large sizes. I could not get a good enough fit with either size, so I changed to the ResMed AirFit F30 medium cushion setup. I like it much better since it has no parts of the mask up and around the bridge of your nose. For me, it is much more comfortable and effective than the F20. I would still consider the F2 as a backup mask if needed.

I wrote up a review on the F30 too. You can find it here. ResMed AirFit F30 - A Comprehensive Review and Helpful Tips

All the best.

RE: Nose bridge skin problem
The F20 I used for a short time. The top of the mask would sit right where the pads from my glasses normally would on the bridge of my nose. I started developing painful sores. Like RayBee I switched to the F30 and have not looked back. The F30 can be a little fussy trying to get no leaks but I do much better with it. The P10's were just not for me, but the wife loves them.
