Hi Kas,

(can't remember the brand at the moment....)

Some common brands are Resmed, Respironics and Hans Rudolph.

(and my skin is apparently now reacting to the rubber seal on the mask. (I have pretty sensitive skin, but didn't have a problem until this week - I suspect that perspiration is the catalyst.) I now sport a red, chapped outline of the mask on my face)

Well, there are several things you can try. First you may want to try a different Full Face Mask(FFM). If you are using the Resmed or the Respironic FFM, you may consider the Hans Rudolph FFM.

Another suggestion is to let you face heal first. Try going to a Resmed Swift nasal pillow system with a chin restraint while you face heals itself. The Resmed Swift is extremely comfortable and the chin restrait will help keep the mouth closed.

Hope this helps. Good luck.
