I have to learn to post more complete questions....
Yeah, I am naughty.. I have been playing with the headgear and the humidity settings on the machine and the ramp times... I overly tightened the headgear about three nights ago and caused the sore nose I now have and the two cute little pimples (one on each cheek, in the same spot on either side) and I learned that the headgear doesn't have to be THAT TIGHT to be effective.
So, now I am paying for my tampering. I am all out of nursing cream (my youngest is fourteen) and it's a little late to go trucking down to the store - I am all jammied up; my nose has been hurting all day, and I just now realized I have to stick something on it for the next eight hours that will rub and irritate it more... I am slow.
Can you use desitin and not ruin the nasal pillows? Yes, I have diaper cream (soothe the sensitive skin) but no nursing cream (toughen up the skin)... hmmm looks like I need to learn to be a little more proactive in my skin care regime.
Experience is what you get when you didn't get what you wanted.
