Part Three: Top CPAP fails

and How to solve them!


Some CPAP users experience immediate discomfort and long before considering mask fitting or CPAP pressure issues. Which leads us to today`s central question:


What do I do now? Am I allergic to my CPAP mask!

Here are some tips on how you can test whether your skin is allergic to your CPAP mask, and what to do about it.


  • Stop wearing the CPAP mask and contact your physician. Usually an allergic reaction to a CPAP mask will occur the same night you wear it.
  • Consider how frequently you clean your mask. Almost 9 out of 10 times, what appears to  an allergic reaction to a CPAP mask (such as a bruise on the face or a skin infection) is caused by infrequent cleaning of the mask.
  • Check whether your mask is an old version made with latex. The majority of the CPAP masks in the market today are hypoallergenic. Almost all are latex free.
  • Consider a one time free mask substitute, if you purchased your mask less than (30) thirty days ago.

This is part three in a series about common CPAP issues.
