Anyone have wood allergies?

Bruce McElhaney, Spring Lake, Michigan
>I recently had a allergic reaction after a turning session. I broke out in hives on my hands and face and had difficulty breathing plus my eyes puffed up. Not sure which wood it was as I was using both Redheart and Wenge in a segmented turning. I know I'm allergic to walnut dust. Anyone allergic to either of these other woods?
