I use my xpap with a ff mask when needed, but have found that my nasal pillows help keep the nasal passages clear. I do crank up my HH a bit which seems to help. I don't think that the xpap makes the cold worse or last longer, the virus has to run it's course.
I too have a cold, perhaps it was even the flu. It lasted at least 8 days. I don't know how I would have survived without the APAP and humidifier. In the past, I only used the humidifier with my machine when I was sick.
Use the machine.....
