Frequently Asked Questions about CPAP Care, Treatment and Supplies
Why is my face breaking out around my nose?
Acne and other sores may be cause by one of three things:
1. Facial oils building up under the mask.
2. The mask is too tight on your face.
3. You may be allergic to the material in your seal/mask.
First try loosening your mask slightly and make sure it is thoroughly clean before putting it on at night. If that does not correct the problem you should speak with your physician about the possibility of an allergic reaction.
