Brief Answer: Allergic reaction to oxygen tubes. Detailed Answer: Hello! Thanks for your query. Oxygen has vasoconstrictive effects on the circulatory system, reducing peripheral circulation. These problems might include a dry or bloody nose, skin irritation from the nasal cannula or face mask, fatigue (tiredness), and morning headaches not runny nose/eyes . This may be allergic reaction to oxygen nasal tubing. You should try to change tubes. If your symptoms dont relive after changing them you should consult with your GP. Take care of your self
