The machine works wonderfully and I sleep great, however, this drainage problem is severe and at times very embarrassing. I would appreciate some help.
Do you use a humidifier?
If so at what setting?
Nasal congestion/drainage/sneezes etc can be affected by the air going into the nose by any method and not just nasal pillows.
Some people need more moisture added and some people need less.
I have used nasal pillow mask for over 3 years now and the only time I had problems with my nose was when I forgot to add water to the humidifier and the tank went dry. This dried out my nasal mucosa something awful and its response was profuse drainage, sneezes and general miserable nose and sinuses.
It would help if we knew for sure what machine and set up you were using.
