Allergy To Lacquer?

Recommended Posts

I seem to get a rash when I touch cured lacquer.It just happened out of the blue.I was playing and noticed an itchy rash where my arm touches the body.When I stop playing for a few days it goes away.

I can't say for sure but it seems likely that it is the lacquer.

Is this common at all? :D

I get some irritation when I play a hard cornered guitar, like a Les Paul or an acoustic. All my guitars are smooth and/or sleek except for the acoustic and LP. So strumming against that corner makes it itchy and red. The other possibility is your own sweat or body oils, and/or the guitar polish. Otherwise try playing with a long sleeve shirt on and see if you still itch.
