    Have been giving a new Comfort Strap a workout. Last night I was playing w/ my shirt off and I started getting a itchy red spot on my shoulder - like an allergic reaction.

    Anyone else have this problem? Can one be allergic to that stuff?

    Yes, you can become allergic to neoprene.

    However, having one of these straps myself, I know that the neoprene can be clingy against bare skin, and can absorb sweat. You may just have a simple rash.

    Possibly just a simple rash, like stated above. Also, wrong forum, moved to Misc.
