Burns acrylic face mask

Nerida Hopkins-Arnold

Hi everyone,

Throwing a question out regarding transparent acrylic face masks for
burns. Any suggestions for reducing/managing sweating beneath the mask?

I have a client recently fitted with an acrylic face mask. Client
describes self as always having been a “hot bod”, the sort of person who
goes to bed without pajamas on even in the middle of winter.

Client has air-conditioning. Waking 2-3 hours into night-time
wear sweating profusely beneath mask, & with skin consequently itchy,
having to remove mask. Can tolerate 1-2 hour blocks of wear during day
before needing a break for the same reason.

Any magical ideas?

Thank you in advance brains trust.

Warm regards,
