Questions and Answers About Sleep

I wake up in the morning with a red mark on the bridge of my nose. I tried cotton which only gives me huge air leaks. I usually have a reaction to the adhesive in bandages so I would have red marks left from that, has anyone had this problem and maybe have a solution?

Diana, I can relate to you! You should read the post I just replied to Kim, about that new product I've been using....
I just ordered a new mask and it is made out of a different material. I can't wear it.
I am very sensitive to textures. I wake up with a ridge on my right cheek
because I have to make it so tight. The leaking air sound can be very annoying.
Hi Diana,
I can so very much relate about having those "red marks" on my nose. I also was getting indentations on my cheeks from the straps. I too had problems with air leaking. It always sounded like I was whistling. What I did, I contacted the company where I got my CPAP and told them of my problems. They brought over several masks for me to try on. WELL, I finally got one that doesn't whistle or leave any marks and is extremely comfortable.
If anyone would like any information about the mask or anything else, please contact me and I will help out in anyway I can.
Have a wonderful day.
Gentle Hugs,
Karen
I am more than willing to try a new mask, what is the name of yours? I also got a reply from a woman that discovered something called RemZzz's and it is suppose to make the mask fit, take care of any moisture or oil from your face. I found it on a site www.remzzzs.com, I haven't ordered them yet but will be soon. I will try anything. Thanks for your response!
HI Diana,
I am also very frustrated with the marks on my cheeks every morning and would love to know which mask you are referring to. I was just looking at the ResMed website and looking at masks to see if there is something else out there I could try. Could you please let me know which model you are using now?

I am using the ComfortGel/Full and it is far better than the original mask, that one was terrible. This one is very comfortable but to keep from leaks into my eyes I have to keep it tight and therefore get that red mark across the bridge of my nose. Someone wrote to me and told me about RemZzz's and I am going to try it as soon as I get them. The web site is www.remzzzs.com. I have tried everything else the RT has suggested, cotton ball across the nose, moleskin across the nose, they all cause more leaks and with the leaks come puffy swollen eyes. I feel so much better using the CPAP I sure wish I could work out the "kinks" What mask are you using?
I tried the RemZzzs last night and I am hooked, no red marks on my nose, no leaking, no noise. Wonderful product!!! I ordered a sample pack that had 5 in it, used it one night and got on and ordered a months supply. The answer to my problem!!!
What is the mask you are using now that is so much better?
I started using the RemZzzs and it is wonderful, no red marks, no leaking, and I can use my face creams again. I am really happy with this product!
Diana
That's great! I'm happy for you! I also was glad when I could wear my face cream at night. I was worried that my skin would age faster than nature had intended. RemZzzs are my answer too, I won't sleep with them now.
Very much interested in knowing more about your new mask ASAP!
RemZzzs is not a mask, it is a thin soft absorbent piece of material that is cut according to your mask, I have to admit when I saw it (first I ordered a sample pack) I didn't think it would do anything but it has been a wonderful help to my problems. I no longer have leaking because it cushions where the mask meets the face and absorbs oils or sweat and eliminates the leaking. My other problem was a red mark on the bridge of my nose, this has helped with that too!!! Go to www.RemZzzs.com and take a look, I heard about it from someone on this site and I am so grateful. Let me know if this helps you!
Diana
By the way, the mask I use is Comfort Gel/Full the first one they gave me didn't work well at all but this one is very comfortable.

Let’s stop your husband’s snoring!

You know you are married to a very good guy. He helps you with the housework, he is always so supportive, he takes you out on fancy dinner nights and not to mention all those times he makes you laugh like you were five years old. It is true that he is the best! If only you could stop his snoring though…When you think about going to sleep, you probably might want to just stay in the couch a little bit longer. You might actually even consider sleeping there (if you haven’t already done it). His…See More
