A face mask, sometimes called a nasal spray, is used to clean the nasal passages. It is typically used at night while sleeping, though it may be used any time of the day, as it has no side effects, if taken properly. A cloth face mask is basically a porous mask worn over the nose and mouth, designed using coarse textiles, most commonly cotton. While such facial masks aren’t available everywhere, and even when physically effective masks can’t be obtained, cloth face masks can provide some relief from stuffiness caused by mucus that gets stuck in the nasal passageways. They are very comfortable to wear and easy to clean.
To make a face mask, the fibers of which are used are typically treated with binding agents. Such binding agents keep the fibers intact so that they do not tear when the face mask gets wet. The fibers are generally treated with nylon, polyester or silk. Nylon and polyester are the most commonly used materials for face masks, as they provide good tensile strength and elasticity. Silk, on the other hand, are very soft but are also extremely durable.
Some people find that wearing a face mask while sleeping causes some discomfort. However, it is worth bearing in mind that the discomfort will usually go away within a few hours unless the mask gets wet. If the discomfort persists after this time, then it may be an indication that the mask has become too wet. This may lead to the tearing of the fibers. This is something to bear in mind, as it may well be a case of worsening the condition, rather than helping it.
One of the disadvantages of making a face mask on your own is that you cannot use the same type of cloth used for the production. Though most commercial masks are made using standard fabric like cotton, polyester or silk, there may be some occasions where the fabric you use for the face mask is not suitable. This could result in the mask becoming flimsy, which could result in slipping when it comes into contact with your skin. As you may be aware, the hands are the most common medium through which bacteria enter the body. Therefore, if your hands are dirty, the chances of you spreading the infection to the face mask are high.
Respirators are often used in hospitals and clinics to protect others from the infection caused by the surgical face mask. However, some people argue that these respirators do not do a good job of protecting the wearer. In order to compensate for this, some people make use of disposable plastic nasal masks. While these masks do not protect the wearer as effectively as the ones made using proper fabrics, they are a cheaper alternative and are certainly better than wearing no mask at all.
Finally, it should be pointed out that it is unlikely that making your own mask will help you prevent infection. Such masks can only do so much to protect you. In order to reduce your risks of contracting an infection, it would be best if you avoid using public places in the first place. If you have to wear a mask to work in an office, it is best that you wear a hard hat. It may not be possible to wear a hard hat in every situation, but wearing one in the places where you are likely to come in contact with people – such as clinics and hospitals – is still good practice. By taking all these factors into consideration, it is safe to assume that there is nothing wrong with wearing a surgical mask in the places mentioned here.
