Anyone ever get skin irritation when using their CPAP machine? What do you use and how well does it work?

The area just under my nose and upper lip have been getting very raw and sore from my nasal mask. Last night I put some Vaseline on the area where it was getting bad, and I woke up this morning feeling much better. The redness and soreness was greatly reduced.

You should not use vaseline with any mask using a silicone seal as it will break down the silicone. You might try 100% aloe gel or a mask liner.

I had Lanisoh ointment recommended to me yesterday and I tried it out last night, it worked amazing!! no itchy face or ripping the mask off in the middle of the night, no red face in the morning and it made the nasal pillows fit better. You can buy it in walmart or walgreens, its worth every penny.
