Strap on head causes itching


#1

The top of my head itches where the strap to hold my mask on is. Does anyone have a solution for this? Is there some device that I can use that does not require a strap over the top of my head? Oral appliance does not work for me with my severe sleep apnea.

Hi @Clobob - For the irritation, I have something that works! Line the strap with a strip of lamb skin. (really, any soft fabric to cover that area of the strap) If you need a resource, let me know.

Good luck !

I use a nice, old soft, washed sock under it. Works for me!
