speaking of reaction to wood

>I saw Bretts post-hope he gets some medical attention. My question, has anyone had any reaction to padauk? I used this stuff for years then suddenly a while back when I sawed it and sanded it I had an immediate reaction. My eyes burned and itched and really got stopped up and congested. I tried it a couple of times afterward but decided it just wasn't worth it. Although it is beautiful wood. I can use very small pieces of it for accents or bands on pens but I have had to give up on using it for making anything. Anyone else react to padauk
