Hey Spark Friends!
I recently have been blessed with a CPap machine after years of fighting with insurance to get one. So in no way am I trying to complain because I greatly appreciate the miserable pain, fatigue, and ick that I felt before with my apnea...
With that said, does anyone have any recommendations on how to combat the rubbing of the mask? I have the one that goes outside and over the nose so it lands around the sides where my cheeks would start. I have eczema and it is really starting to agitate it! Ive been using my eczema cream, but does anyone have any thoughts? Suggestions?
I've also noticed that the straps on the mask move up and down a lot. If I loosen it, then the mask will not stay on my nose, if I tighten it then the straps will hurt my ear & face. Anyone else have that problem? Thoughts, Suggestions?
1 last thing, despite changes in my setting for the humidifier, the mask will usually gather water droplets towards the end of the night. And when those finally drop on my nose that usually wakes me up! Anybody else have that?
Thanks for any help, tips, or tricks!
