[Symptoms] AirMini is tearing my nose up!
AirMini is tearing my nose up!
Help.  I bought an AirMini because I planned to do a bunch of traveling and didn't want to carry around the regular Resmed suitcase.  I am not a mouth breather and use a P10 nose pillow.  But, this thing is tearing my nose up.  When I first got it, I was able to use it for about a month.  The regular HumidX seemed to work fine.  Plus was too wet.  But, then I had about with the flu, etc., and stopped using it until healthy again.  Used it for a couple of weeks and it was ok but then.  Woke up in the middle of the night with a dried out mouth and my nose on fire.  Took the mask off and for a half hour, sneezed and blew my nose trying to get rid of all the crap coming out of my sinuses.  Thought maybe it was sanitation so spent ANOTHER chunk of money to get the So Clean.  Used the AirMini one night and everything was ok.  Night two?  Same darned thing and today I feel like I have a head cold.  it will last a couple of days.  So, what's up?  Is the pressure too high or fluctuating? Would it be any better with a mask? I REALLY don't want to wear a mask. What can I do to use this gold plated machine without being sick all the time?
