I've had a few nights now with the CPAP machine. Initially it seemed as though it was going to be a silver bullet since my wife said I slept without snoring and I certainly woke up feeling much more rested than I've felt for ages. I have a few questions, however:
Firstly, I have red marks where my full-face mask sits on my cheeks along the line from my nose to my mouth. It lasts all day and I feel quite self-conscious about this. Any tips on how to avoid the redness altogether or lessen it in the morning?
Secondly, did anybody buy their machine and mask second-hand? At the moment I'm renting a machine, but was wondering if there is a reputable second-hand company that certifies, etc, that would have cheaper machines.
I'd really appreciate any advice. Cheers.
