cPAP silicone allergy

Hello @dancingcat, Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect. The CPAP mask is part that gives most of us the trouble. I think I have been through 6 or 7 different masks. I currently use a ResMed AirFit F20 full face mask with a CPAP comfort cover cover (https://cpapcomfortcover.com/). I tried the Dreamweaver under the nose mask but I have a deviated septum which causes issues with the nose breathing and it didn't work for me. I did find a padded cover that may help with nose and surrounding area problem you are having. The cloth cover made all the difference in the world for me. Here's a mask liner that works for your mask – https://www.padacheek.com/dreamwear-full-face

Another solution is the Sleepweaver line of non silicone masks: https://circadiance.com/sleepweaver/.

Dreamweaver was by far the most comfortable mask for me also when I was able to breath successfully through my nose. Now that I see someone has made a cloth cover I may switch back to the Dreamweaver mask (if I can find it!). Have you tried using a cloth cover between the mask and your face?

The web page for the cpapcomfortcover does have a ling for nasal cushions but on this pages states that "There are no products listed under this category." For their nasal mask page, there is nothing shown for my Dreamwear maks by Philips. Their link to email them is very confusing, so I was not successful.
