Skin breakdown

Any input on skin breakdown prevention on N95? As a skin champion in my unit I plan to use the mepilex dressing, lotion, just to prevent abrasions or breakdown on bridge of the nose. Will it not disrupt the seal of n95?

We have found (so far) the best protection for our skin and to keep the integrity of our N95s has been the salmon color tape anesthesia uses to secure the ETTs. We have tried band aids, tagaderm, and KT tape and found those to be way too sticky upon removal. Stay strong mental / physically & most importantly safe!
