    Important Tips

    This product is designed to help prevent skin problems such as chafing, irritation, dryness or cracking from using a CPAP mask or other delivery device. It is applied to the affected area as often as needed.

    If using nasal pillows you should apply the cream to the outside and inside of the nares or nasal passages.

    Petroleum-based products should not be used with CPAP masks. Petroleum breaks down the silicone of the masks and causes damage and early deterioration.

    This product is made by the same company as RoEzIt but with a slightly different formulation specifically for CPAP users. It is thicker than the RoEzIt cream and has a better scent.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    Why am I getting sores inside my nose?
    Sores inside the nose may be caused by nasal pillow or nasal prong devices that are too big or the wrong shape for your nose.

    If you use nasal pillows, try the smallest size available that seals around your nares. Your nose might also be sensitive to the presence of the nasal pillows, and it might take time for your nose to "toughen up" and adjust to the nasal pillows. Try switching back and forth between the nasal pillow mask and a nasal mask. You might also try nose lubricants to reduce the irritation.
    Citrus Mask Wipes

    Nasal prongs must be inserted into the nostrils and seal tightly, so they may cause irritation or sores. It may be just a matter of your nose "toughening up" over time, so try switching back and forth between the nasal prong device and a nasal mask. If the sores do not heal, we suggest you discontinue using the nasal prongs.

    Sores inside the nose may also be caused by the CPAP air drying out the mucous membrane. Adding moisture with a heated humidifier will help alleviate the problem.
    Why is my nose so dried out?
    The primary reason nasal passages can become dry from CPAP use is lack of adequate humidification.

    CPAP air is an irritant - to one degree or another - to everyone. The irritation may cause the nasal passages to dry out and bleed, or the mucous membranes may try to protect the nasal passages by producing excess mucous and so congestion results. And the irritation can be cumulative; the problem may develop over time. Furthermore, dry, cracked or bleeding nasal passages are a breeding ground for infection.

    Using a heated humidifier to add moisture to the CPAP air may reduce or eliminate the irritation. An unheated, passover humidifier may not offer enough additional moisture. If you are already using a heated humidifier, try turning it up to a higher setting. If that produces condensation in the six foot hose, you should try an insulating cover for the hose. You can also try using a nose lubricant to reduce the dryness.
    How do I avoid red marks?
    Most red marks on the face are caused by over tightening the CPAP mask. CPAP masks should only be tightened down enough to create a seal. To avoid over tightening your mask, you should work clockwise around the mask, making small adjustments to the headgear, until the mask is securely in place but not overly tight. You should avoid pulling too much on one side of the mask than on the other.

    By cleaning your mask cushion, nasal pillows, and nasal prongs on a daily basis, you ensure a better seal each time you put on your mask. If you know you have a mask that fits, and are cleaning it daily, and still have red marks, consider using mask straps pads which are soft covering for the headgear straps.
