Hi guys looking for suggestions on how to avoid welts from my straps. I use the Phillips amara view which I really like. But every morning I wake with big welts across my cheeks which take 3-4 hours to go away. They don’t appear tight I can easily slip my fingers under them. I’m sick of going to work looking like i have been up all night participating in some weird fetish.

Welts or depressions? Welts would suggest a contact dermatitis. Good hydration helps with depressions. Even if tension is just right on the straps, if you sleep on one, it will leave a mark.

There are soft wraps sold for the Swift FX mask that might work to cushion the straps.
