This isn’t really encouraging – I just tried turning a pen last week, and about 24 hours later my eyes were super puffy, light rash on my forehead and cheeks, a bit more around my lips, and my forearms all had rash.

I was hoping it wasnt a reaction to cocobolo, but the more I read, the more I fear.

No reactions to it in the past year, quite a few pieces turned, but then I took a few months off of using it, and its like it was mad at me…

My next plan was to grab a piece, cut it with a hand saw, and push the cut against a patch of skin, and see what happened. I love the wood, so I want to make sure it is the problem before I do the same thing and get rid of all I have stashed.

Having just dealt with this, I wish you the best. For me, a Cortizone 10 Maximum “easy relief applicator” was handy.
