Does anyone else suffer from not wanting to use their machine due to feeling like they are breathing too hot of air? I don't have air conditioning in my house and it's as cool as I can get it with fans. I have my temperature on the machine turned down as low as I can get it, but I still have my humidity up so I am benefiting from that for my allergies. Any suggestions? I find myself not wanting to use the machine even though I know that I need to.

@ResourcefulBeigeLeopard2581 Thanks for your posting! May I ask if you have tried directing one of the house fans to blow right on your mask/face?

Also @ResourcefulBeigeLeopard2581 - I have another question for you regarding the heat bothering you. Do you experience any "heat" discomfort from the mask itself? Or the mask itself causing facial perspiration? Is there anyone else here with these complaints?

I do have a fan blowing on my head / face along with a ceiling fan. I don't have any problems with my nose sweating from my mask although my nose does itch a lot in the mornings after I take it off. That was happening in winter too though.

I understand. The reason I brought this up was that I wondered how many people were aware of the cloth mask that is not available. I would imagine using one of those would reduce the perspiration quite a bit. Has anyone here tried one of the cloth masks?
