Omg crazy nose itch?
Last two nites, last nite the worse.... middle of the nite wanted to rip mask off to itch nose!?!?! 
I'd lift it. Scratch...replace... repeat. Drove me nuts!! 
Felt like there was a hair on my nose. Wth could this be?? 
Anyone else get this?  Definitely isn't there when I put on, but 4hr later or so... 
nothing should be getting in?? Unless a cat hair is lol

Try putting a bandaid on that spot. Or maybe youare allergic to silicone.

I get that sometimes, too! And my masks don't even go over my nose.

Instead of scratching it, try just touching it. Or tap it with your finger nail.

I try to tell myself to ignore it, and go back to sleep.

Yeah. And to clarify. It isn't where it seals. Nothing is touching it. Lol

Hi Phatkid77,
WELCOME! to the forum.!
It might be that you need to trim the hairs in your nose, that can cause itching.
Hang in there for more responses to your post, good luck to you with CPAP therapy.

Can't guarantee this will work 100% but I very lightly coat the inside of my nostrils, just the starting inside nostril edges, not the whole inside nose areas..

The same thing happens to me! I was told the nasal pillows I was using were too big (small->xs). I also get a really dry sore nose. I have to use saline solution in the morning just to be able to breathe. If you found something that helps, let me know!
