Cpap nose sore

Common Questions and Answers about Cpap nose sore

cpap

Also I am using the sleep nose pillows and I have had a sore under my nose ever since I started using the CPAP what is causing this? I can't use the mask.
Generally compliance is greater with nose mask CPAP than with face mask CPAP because of better overall comfort. However, this varies from patient to patient. In case, you face any difficulties, you should consult your physician so that he can suggest you some other options. http://www.chestjournal.org/cgi/content/full/123/3/662 Hope this gives you some insight.
I have just got a CPAP machine and have had 3 nights with it. I've had sleep apnea for many many years and finally did something about it. My questions are for those who've been through the "getting used to it" process.
The right nostril is sore on the inside on the right side. I used a CPAP machine and wonder if this could be causing the problem. I tried different salves but nothing seems to help. If I use a tissue to blow my nose the right side is sore from the squeezing. Not sure if I need an ENT or just wait it out. My CPAP group is up north, maybe I should call them. At least to see if I should stop using it for now.
You would need to stop using your machine for a few days to let the nose heal properly, if you continue to allow the mask to irritate the skin you can end up with a pressure sore on your nose. Take a few days without the machine, try using sudocream or nappy cream on your skin as it will heal it faster. The F&P mask might make a difference however sometimes when people react to the mask especially if it is across the bridge of the nose you would need an alternative type.
very often at least one nostril becomes fatter as though a spot has formed inside my nose, even though it hasn't and my nose goes tough and sore - i got that dry nose thing (forgotten terminology) as a kid how it all crusts up and u cant breathe and even tho i never get ill i always seem to have a sore nose - :( x
it has scabbed over three times and i have got to the stage my nose is too sore to wear, the hospital will not issue me any alternative mask as u are only supposed to have 1 a year.
Just know I don't want to be ripping it off in my sleep cus my sore/scar is hurting, Nor wake up with a real sore nose. Thank you for taking the time to read this and am looking forward to your reply.
had dream combo like nitmare cpap of 6 am nose sore left side again
I'm wondering if anyone is experiencing an unexplained sores anywhere else. I also have sore nose, but also have sore on backside. I thought I had gotten bitten by an insect or something. Also, wondering if anyone is suffering from any other conditions. I have just been diagnosed with having ulcers.
Well this morning I had gotten up choking on the mucus draining into my throat. I gently blew my nose (it's still a lil sore on the left side) and a nickle sized booger came out. Gross huh? It was partially dried blood and red blood to. I realized immediately that it was the cause of the terrible smell. I thought I would be sick! So far the smell is gone (for today) and I hope it doesn't return. Any ideas on what this could have been?
Not breathing well through your nose can alter your heart rate and blood pressure, as well as to increasing your stress response. Your nose makes about 2 pints of mucous every day. If your nose isn't working properly and mucous isn't cleared, the stagnant mucous can lead to infections such as sinusitis or ear infections. Lastly, not breathing well through your nose can aggravate snoring or obstructive sleep apnea.
This time it happened much quicker, starting on the right lower eye, then moved to the left. The right under eye is very red, sore and dry. It feels so rough to touch. I have not worn make up today and have only applied vaseline and aqeous cream. I haven't changed any toileteries or make up in the last 2 months. I am not sure what it could be? I don't think it is eczema, but believe it could be an allergic reaction to something. I can't seem to work out what it could be?
Are you using the BiPap with humidity? That could explain your stuffy nose and sore throat. Or perhaps you are coming down with a bit of a cold but are at the beginning phase of it. I found BiPap to be easier on me than CPap because of the two pressures, it made it easier to breathe out than to try and do that against the constant pressure of Cpap.
I had the coblation done on my left turbinate which lasted for a while and I was able to breathe okay. I am hoping this surgey will be the answer to my sleepless nights and sore throbbing nose. I hope to be able to breathe throught he left side of my nose once he does the surgery. Any one else had this done, let me know your outcome....
Air leaking out through the mouth will give you a sore throat. If your nose doesn't settle down within the next few days to weeks, then talk to your DME vendor or sleep doctor for other options.
Stuffy nose, burning eyes, face is on fire feeling, REALLY sore lymph nodes, Left jaw feels like some one punched the hell out of it,then stuffy nose will turn into a full on waterfall of drainage, throat will swell up super tight as if it is trying to eat itself, can't sleep due to struggling to breathe, then my lungs will also feel like they are forgetting how to work in order to get the next breathe. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing all of this?
Did not help at all, but made CPAP a little more tolerable. (First few tries with CPAP gave me very bad sinus headaches.) RDI went up a little. CPAP is not working well as I still have a lot of nasal blockage when I lay down. Wake up after about 3-4 hours with a very sore throat. Tried oral appliance. Wake up after a few hours with a stuffed nose. Dentist noticed nasal blockage due to nose injury (football) and referred me to an ENT. Have done 2 RF turbinate reductions.
I used a nose prong (resimed) for three weeks no problems at all,then developed dermatitus in and below my nose,sore and unsightly.I tried a mouth splint ,with lots of adjustments,had facial and ear pain.My doctor advised perservering with c-pap,but also adding the apnea was not bad....total rdi=12.1/hr.I am going on a cruise next week,and I am worried.I am wearing tennis balls sowed into a t-shirt,worse in supine rem.I tried half and full c-pap masks,very comfortable,but rash persisted.
I have suffered from a cough and shortness of breath ever since I visited my ENT doctor at the Sleep Apnea Study place I was told to be checked for. After having two nights of study (one with just being wired up and one night wired up and using CPAP) about a month ago, then the ENT doctor wanted to check to see if I had any blockages to make sure that it was just the need for me to be on the CPAP (which I hated, I thought I was being smothered)...
this one fits comfortably and everything, but i wake up about the same time every night and have to end up taking it off because the inside of my nose is so sore. the last mask i had, the nasal piece was an extra small and fitted my nose perfect. this one is a small. i am wondering if the piece is maybe to big, or could it just be the mask or what? when i put the piece in my nostrils at night they are super sore. any reasoning behind this?
I have been sleeping fitfully during the flu and off the machine comes, I often can not stand it to touch my sore nose. One night I made the decision to sleep without it and I slept for 91/2 hours, unheard of! I can not go like this thinking of giving up C-pap. I am a woman and will be 76 years old next month. Life is too short to go through this misery! By the way I have had the flu shot!

I had hoarseness, chest congestion, head congestion, runny nose, cough, and sore throat. I started to improve and was released from hospital (no sore throat, head congestion or runny nose and cough improved) but after a week was back to bronchitis (not quite as severe). Was given antibiotic injections at the doctor's office each day for three days. The cold symptoms completely disappeared.
I am used to cold, moving air when I sleep, and when I wear the cpap I feel like I have a baby octupus on my nose! I can breath okey, just that this kind of feeling causes me to take it off a few hours into my sleep cycle. I am usually not fully awake when I remove it. So I suppose the surgery is not a last resort. I could get buy without it. But these two things I mentioned are enough for me to want it done.
Oh, and I've been naughty about using my CPAP. But I have an excuse. See, it's hard to breathe through my nose right now, so the CPAP isn't totally useful because it's just nasal pillows... it's also been hurting a little more than usual lately. I may have to try to adjust the straps, ugh. I think my dieting is going better. It helps that my family is unemployed and running out of money.
I have a question, can this damage my heart? I use a cpap but still don't think I'm getting enough air. At least not through the day. I always feel out of breath and often feel light headed or off balance. I have pain all throughout my body and I have to assume the pain is from not getting enough oxygen. The numbness and pain I get in my hands and arms can be excrutiating and even sometimes in my legs. Even my lips go numb.
That's my interferon bugaboo I think, runny nose, nasal irritation, bleeding when I blow my nose, and lots of sneezing. Will see what lip is like in am.
I already use a CPAP for sleep apnea and a dental device along with a CPAP mask - too much hardware over my nose, mouth, in my mouth...Still working on this one with dentists. I also clench my teeth constantly. Jaws, neck become quite painful. And I bite down sooooo hard all day long. Anxiety/stress is the main culprit. You say that you do it even on days when you are not anxious. I find this to be true for me as well.
No fluid coming out of my nose. I don't dare blow my nose because then it makes everything tight and sore on the inside. Is this something the body can recover from on it's own? What kind of time frame are we looking at? One doctor in the e.r. said that since I smoked it takes 2 months for the cilia in the mucouse membrane to grow back and recover.
