F20 rubbing the bridge of my nose

Post by Lovedby2 » Sat Nov 20, 2021 8:26 pm

Hello! I have been using the F20 for about a year. I have a very small nose with very thin skin. Increasingly I have noticed permanent lines across the bridge and my nose is very irritated. I am thinking of changing masks but first wanted to see if anyone could advise me who has had this issue and what to do. Thanks.

I have the same issues with the F20. For me, it gets worse as the the cushion gets older. Have you tried band aides? You can also get moleskin sheets and cut squares outta the sheets and place them on your bridge. You can find the moleskin on the foot section of the pharmacy isle... it's used for corns.

I have the same problem. When it gets real bad I use a gel pad cushion that you can get on amazon.

I also use a mask liner.

I used a small bandaid--forgot to remove one--until I was at work.

I used the F20 for years, but it eventually the same thing happened to me. I would highly recommend trying the F30i. It still pushes air through the nose and mouth, but there's no mask on top of the nose, the air hose is on the top of the head, and it doesn't have to be nearly as tight to the face to work. I've also tried the nasal pillows and nasal dam, but couldn't stay with it.
