I now have a gel mask which I have been wearing the last two nights.. I think the rash has eased a little bit, but not much. The Gel mask does not provide as good a seal, but am working on improving the seal. I also have ordered for my full face mask, (silicone mask) pads which are designed to protect the skin from the silicone mask.. after this eases up, the rash
I may try the pads. Thanks, Jeff
Griffy04 - It's not my son, but prayer is always welome.
We have considered nasal pillows with chin strap, but the production of saliva and difficulty swallowing will not allow that type interface.
Thanks for your thoughts and prayers.
Thank you Griffy, how about zinc oxide. Cortisone cream also sounds like a good idea. Is it common to get rashes on the face from silicone masks.. the rashes are quite impressive. I tend to breath thorugh my mouth thus bypassing any nose
mask or nose pillow.. but I do have a chin strap thingy to keep my mouth closed. Jeff
