Hi... I've been happily using my CPAP machine for about 7 months now... and enjoying feeling rested in the morning. I wear a full face (nose & mouth because I'm a mouth breather at night) mask - can't remember the brand at the moment....

The happiness has come to a crashing halt, however. The last week has been fairly warm - 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 - it looks hideous!

Any ideas? Are there different kinds of materials used in the masks? Any thoughts on what would prevent the chapping?
