Nose itch
My full face mask is comfortable. But don't know why when I use it, my nose itches a lot all nite. When I take it out it stops. Tired other full face mask same issue. Will use pillow mask with chin strap and try.

RE: Nose itch
I use a pillow with chinstrap, don't know if my itchy nose is as severe as yours but it sure does make it easy to scratch! Good luck.

RE: Nose itch
It's your skin telling you that you have some foreign object that doesn't belong there. Well, it does belong there but how is your skin to know? Antihistamines can help a bit, as can pain pills (since itchiness is a form of pain), but in general it's about getting used to it.

RE: Nose itch
Mine itches the most just after I put on the mask. I take it off, scratch and it's usually all better.

RE: Nose itch
Nose hair trimming and humidity adjustment are also some factors that can be involved in nose itch problems.
