Mask leaves indent on face.

Post by rswannabe » Tue Mar 21, 2023 2:32 pm

Hello all,

long time, no post. Hey, I've been meaning to ask this for a while. I've searched and see posts about "red marks", but my mask F(airfit P10) has left actual indentations from my nose all the way to my ears that do not go away and it's super embarassing. The mask is not super tight either. I'm really not sure what to do about it.

Try some strap pads. You can make your own or buy ready made.

Or a mask like I use that doesn't have headgear or straps.

Thank you Pugsy! I just ordered the Bleep to check out. Hoping it works for me.

Bumping up this older thread. I tried similar pads and it then compromise the fit of my F30i. Leaks, etc.

Just checking if there are other options. My skin is not as elastic as it once was, when I started using CPAP. The marks used to only visible for about one hour after I wake up. Now, at times, I can see and feel the marks of my mask 8 hours after, and sometimes into the evening hours.
