If a sore develops on my face, what do I do?
POSTED 03 Oct 2016
It could be that the mask is pressing too hard on your face, this can often be at the bridge of the nose or just under the nose. The solution to this is to wear the mask as lose as you can without affecting the air seal. It may also be that the straps are not evenly adjusted making the mask sit unevenly on your face - ensure the straps are even on both sides. It is also not advisable to use creams on your face at night before using your CPAP and always wash your face with a simple soap before sleep, this can help to prevent sores and any air leakage issues with the mask.
