Windburn?
#1
Last night was my best night yet in the 2 weeks I've had the machine.
Used my Respironics WISP with a size L cushion; was comfortable with it for a bit over 8 hours with an AHI of 0.2.

What's not to like? My nose is RED and Sore! Not the part under the cushions as I would expect, but the part that is out in the interior space of the mask. It feels like windburn more than anything else.
THe Aloe/Emu cream has help a bit, but I do not think I can wear that mask tonight - too sore!

Anyone ever experienced this, and have any tricks for avoiding or mitigating the problem?

thanks!
Dave

Never had that problem in +9 years. Also can't imagine intentionally not using my cpap for a night... ever. If I had the problem, I would figure a way to work through it while still using the cpap.

Wash the mask daily and wash your face before masking up, and don't over tighten the straps
This might helps, Wisp mask liner from "pad a cheek"

I wash the mask daily. And the cut-out in the liner posted above is where the RED is - arghh.

I will use my CPAP tonight, just not with my Respironics WISP. Which, so far, gives me better results than my P10. But P10 here I come.

thanks
Dave
