Hi, her oxygen supplier should provide them. I phoned my partner's supplier, Dolby Vivisol, and they posted some, free of charge.

I tried the foam ones myself and they didn't work. The hospital prescribed Proshield. It did work. I don't use anything now as they seem to have settled down and I don't get soreness any more.
