It is important to have the proper fitting technique and to follow a regular maintenance schedule for the mask and other components.
Avoid over-tightening the mask straps as the pressure of the cushion on the facial skin can cause redness. Clean the mask cushion daily with a mild soap or a wet wipe designed for this purpose. If you have sensitive skin, we recommend that you clean your mask with the same soap you use to wash your face and avoid scented products.
It is not recommended that you apply cream to your face just before using your mask, unless you use a cream specifically designed for this purpose.
If you follow the maintenance rules and the redness persists, consult your respiratory therapist to find the appropriate solution.
