have you ever slept without a mask due to a severe cold?

RE: have you ever slept without a mask due to a severe cold?
Good strategy. When irritation begins being felt, switching out to a different mask for a few days and applying a tiny dab of Lansinoh works wonders. If it's gentle and effective enough for its intended target, it'll be perfectly fine for your sensitive nasal bits. Thinking-about

RE: have you ever slept without a mask due to a severe cold?
Funny--about switching masks. I recently got a P10. Loved it! But after two weeks I started having 'fit' issues. Went back to my Swift (and I'd had the same issues with it earlier)--problem solved. I intended to send back the P10 in time to get a refund, but decided to try it for one more night. No issues! I'm back to loving it. So...switching out is proving to be a good thing.

I also bought an Amara View some years ago thinking that I'd use it if I got a cold. But like others here I find that nasal pillows really help to decongest my air passages and so I haven't had to use it. Maybe if my nose gets set in concrete with congestion I'll be glad to have it. It's a good mask.
