Nasal cannula is causing raw spots
« on: December 19, 2017, 09:51:13 AM »
I help take care of my elderly uncle who uses oxygen at night.  The nasal cannula is causing him to get sores inside his nose.  He has a humidifier attached to the machine, so that isn't the cause.  The doctor's office wasn't at all helpful when I called to ask about it, but I'm guessing the flu season has them busy.  What can I do to prevent the sores? My uncle  can't skip a night without wearing the cannula or his oxygen plummets and he refuses to wear a mask instead so the sores can heal.  Are there other options for getting the raw spots to heal?

I'm updating just in case someone else runs into this problem.  I finally got him to the doctor and learned that the sores are common.  Nasal cannulas come in different sizes and varieties (none of us knew that) so were able to find one that fit him better.
