Hi Maxine - I also suffered similar problems, and early on started to use a hair net. Not the sexiest of looks but it helps! You can buy sleep hair nets from High St chemists.. I also have a silk hair cap and a light jersey cap which I got off the Internet. I also swear by a pure silk pillowcase which is not only cool on the head, but also helps with moving around in the night as there is less friction. Hope this helps a little and good luck - am sure you will start to feel the benefits of using the CPAP very soon once the little irritations are sorted.

"Are your AHI results on the CPAP 5 or below? If so, check your hose hasn't developed any little holes. Occasional mask leaks shouldn't cause this.
