I'm allergic to my suit

Man, i am allergic to my suit it appears. I just got a new 1pc suit and I'm allergic to the neoprene. This sucks, i'm so itchy. Do most suits have any neoprene in them, I can't remember if they do.

I haven't ever experienced this with a jacket or suit before, but knee pads and gloves I have. Oh well just sharing my situation with you guys as I work.

get under armor. That will give you a layer of cloth between you and the suit.

+1, There is a good chance you are not allergic but are just experiencing what happens when the suit is rubbing on you. Get some kind of under armor and you will be set. makes it easier to get in out of your suit as well.

Call Patrick, You are probably are not the first or last guy to have this problem. A little veteran advice can go along way.

i wouldnt cut the suit man, just use under armor and have the suit dry cleaned, it will help remove the new fibers and compress them after the dry clean. my .02

well it's not the rubbing of the suit but the neoprene in the neck area of the suit. when i buy stuff i have to check the materials. however, when i bought this suit, i didn't check it, and lo and behold it has about a 3"X6" piece of neoprene in the neck area, and that's where i have broken out.....it's killing me. i can't wait for the dr. to call me back with a prescription.

Dont just cut it. if its just the collar you could have it fixed by a tailor. either remove the piece, recover it or replace it with something else.
