My Airfit F10 full face mask is causing skin irritation and rash. Any suggestions on different masks or fixes? Thank you

Mask liners may helps, pad a cheek (washable) or Remzzzs (google it)
You can make your own liners too. Things might helps also, don't overtighten the straps, wash the mask daily to remove any facial oil and wash your face before putting the mask on

WELCOME! to the forum.!
You can also make mask liners by cutting them out of old teeshirts.
Hang in there for more suggestions and much success to you with your CPAP therapy.

Make sure whatever you are washing your mask in is something you are not allergic or sensitive to. Rinse very, very, very well. If it is allergy season and I don't want to add another scent to my battered nose, I just use very warm water and rub the mask with my fingers until it squeaks.
If it is a new mask, did you wash it before you started using it? Some people experience an allergy-like reaction to new masks if it isn't washed first.
The Remzz liners would help to some degree but they aren't going to completely prevent the mask from contacting your skin. It will greatly help, however, and what little does touch you will be minimal.
