Do you use a mask liner? That has helped me. I have rosacea, someone also
told me to try milk of magnesia on my face.

try mask liner and don,t overtighten the straps
overtightening can lead to more leaks

washing the cushions daily helps and replace cushion when worn out
maybe less humidity

New CPAP user here - been at it for two weeks now.

I use a ResMed Quattro Air. My setting is 18cm, so I feel like I have to lock down my mask pretty tight. I got a pimple/sore on the bridge of my nose during the first couple days. As Zonk says, I've found that it's critical to wash my mask every day, to remove oils from the seal. I don't use a liner. I also wash my face before bed each night, concebtrating on the area where the mask will sit.

I've found that doing these two things has prevented any more break outs.

Good luck!
