I am looking for a mask that is comfortable and doesn't leave marks on my face. I have tried several and have no success, I hate it.
Generally the most minimalist masks (masks that have fewer points of contact on the face) are nasal pillows. I would recommend the following masks to consider: https://www.easybreathe.com/Sleep-Apnea-Masks/Nasal-Pillow-Masks/Complete-Packages-includes-headgear-and-pillows-/AirFit-P10-Mask-System-p4209.html (click to view)https://www.easybreathe.com/Sleep-Apnea-Masks/Nasal-Pillow-Masks/Complete-Packages-includes-headgear-and-pillows-/Swift-FX-Bella-Gray-Mask-System-p4013.html (click to view)
There is a mask that has no mask or headgear, which you should also check out here: https://www.easybreathe.com/Sleep-Apnea-Masks/Nasal-Pillow-Masks/Complete-Packages-includes-headgear-and-pillows-/CPAP-Pro-Mask-System-p4163.html (click to view)
Generally you can make CPAP therapy more comfortable and avoid marks by using liners; let us know the name of the mask so I can send you some liners for example. The name is usually on the mask frame, cushion, or headgear.
Red marks on the face are usually a result of tightening your CPAP mask too tight. You should only tighten your mask enough to create a seal. To make sure that you are not tightening your mask too tight, try to avoid pulling too much on either side of your mask.
We also carry items that may help, like the Gecko nasal pad. Click here to view
