Dealing with Red mark on forehead


Posted by Train Master on March 05, 2003 at 00:01:46:

Hello people,

I was reading some posts refering some users of Profile the Lite mask sometime gets a red mark on the forehead. I too used to gets this odd feature on my forehead as well!!!

Honestly it looks like a 3rd eye! But eventually found away to prevent getting this mark on your forehead on waking first thing in the morning.

The trick is to make sure that your head strap has roughly the same tension as your lower lower the head strap below the ears , as I found if the top straps is markly tighter then the lower strap the causes the mask to sit on your face unevenly causing the mask to press down harder on down the top some areas ie;

If it presses on forehead harder, that gel spacer on the mask pressing hard on your skin can be the cause that red mark on the forehead in the morning !!

From my experince sometime the pressure on my forehead from the gel spacer used to wake me up in the middle of night only to readjust the top straps to be looser as the gel spacer my forehead hurt my forehead as it was on too tight!

Plus on waking it often left a mark on my forehead that stayed there for hours! It looks funny....

where the straps are done up too tight top of the mask or bottom of it.
