Hello.

Yes, a CPAP machine, if not cleaned regularly could harbor infective agents. You have to clean the machine regularly.

How useful do you find the machine for your problem ?

Hi, when you catch sinus, try to see your doctor and get it treated and don't let it go chronic, cold and dust can precipitate it quickly. Your CPAP machine may also be a reason. Avoid very cold weather and have steam bath or frequent steams. Consult ENT specialist if nothing is working out. Take care.
