mask causing problems, need advice

mask causing problems, need advice
Mostly I like my mask, it is the Philips dream(?) full face, but it is irritating a small spotr by the side of my nose.  I really dont want to go through the exercise of trying multiple new masks.  Any advice on how to prevent this "hot spot"?

Either a Mask Liner, if it is a seal that is causing the irritation or a piece of mole skin as in protecting a blister. Can't tell from your description.
