I've been using this since 2011, 2litres p.m. 24/7, with nasal specs and a really sore ear It has never interfered with my sleep. However I also have Fibro Myalgia Syndrome and Arthritis, and as a result I can only sleep in 1 position with my left ear taking most of the pressure, and during the day, more and more, as I stand up with the aid of my frame, I'm stepping on to the tube which then digs in to the back of my ear. I know what you're thinking cant you just move it out of the way first? Simple answer really, I only remember when it's too late! A carer helps me in the shower and moisturise every day, Nothing seems to help. Look away now if you're squeamish - it's like a paper cut right on top and sore, cracking surrounding it, sometimes really itchy. and (sorry) crusty (I did worn you). I've tried steroid cream, but I'm wary of using it every day because of course that's not good either. Any suggestions much appreciated. Tulip xx
