Except for checking to see if the foam filter is in place, I let it go.

I've wondered this, too! It feels like you're coughing on yourself or into your own face. So weird.

I use a nasal mask. But when I have used a FFM, I don't remove it to cough because *I don't want to try to get the seal again*!

I wonder if the germs from the sneeze or cough stay "trapped" in the mask and I'm now breathing in that s***

They came out of you, what harm are they going to do going back in?  It is not like someone else sneezed in it!
