I also have that problem. I bought some numbing gel for mouth sores. Comes in liquid or ointment/gel. I rub it on my nose, outside and inside and that seems to help. Sounds crazy but I was desperate. They laughed at me at the sleep center but I don't care. It worked for me.

The air blowing around in the mask moves your nose hairs around, and your hindbrain thinks A BUG IS CRAWLING UP THERE! I'LL MAKE THE NOSE ITCH SO THE APE WILL SCRATCH IT!.

(hindbrain not very smart).

I've seen it repeatedly with people, and when they trim.. the itch goes away.

strange that it never seems to itch IN the nose... just on or around it... again, hindbrain not very smart.
