Painful split on septum

Thank you for replying with more information.
Dry nose is one problem that can occur with CPAP.
Tell your doctor about this issue. Generally, the use of a humidifier or a corticosteroid nasal spray medicine can be prescribed to reduce nasal irritation.
Adjustments may be necessary such as a properly fitting mask and air pressure settings.

Hi Anon

Thanks for your question and welcome!

This sounds very painful - how did this happen? The cause may influence the healing process. The good news is that the always growing nose heals pretty well.

Did you get cut? Have an accident? If you can tell us more we can help you further!
