 Re: allergic to reeds?

It's possible that the original poster's case is herpes simplex, a simple "fever blister" or so-called "cold sore".
The herpes virus is a life-long resident in the vermillion border of the lip and is activated by trauma (fever, mechanical trauma, excessive UV exposure, etc).
Strangely, many of us get fever blisters, but not from trauma. Strange virus. Not completely predictable. I've had experiences when I've picked up a horn after laying off for a while and immediayely gotten herpes labialis (the medical moniker), which after continued playing over the days disappears and doesn't recur.
Go figure.
