Mouth Sores

by Restonrose » Fri Nov 20, 2020 9:31 am

I am a new cpap user and am having several issues. I am finding that the inside of my mouth is drying up to the point where I have sores on my lips – inside and out. I have increased the humidity, but that doesn’t seem to help. Also, at about 2-3 hours into my sleep, the mask begins to have air leaks and I have to take it off. I have a full mask as I am a mouth breather. Any one have suggestions?

Maybe you have some kind of infection, aggravated by dryness.See your doctor.
