Pimples inside nose
Hello all!
Anyone else getting flare ups of acne in the nasal passages?
I was wondering if this is related in any way to the use of the CPAP mask?

RE: Pimples inside nose
My first sarcastic thought was "Well, stop putting chocolate up your nose!". But I decided to not mention that.

You have a nasal mask, not nasal pillows? If so, then I don't see how CPAP would cause nasal pimples. Pimples are due to oil and etc. I guess maybe the dryness would cause the pores to clog maybe....

I've not had any acne issues inside the nostrils. I have where the mask rests, but not inside.

RE: Pimples inside nose
I will occasionally get one in side my nose. Have long before CPAP. Usually ingrown hairs. If you were using nasal PILLOWS that stick up in sode, I might see that but not with a mask.
