I have been playing the violin for six years now, and a few months ago I noticed that I have acquired a red mark right under my chin on the left side. I think I might have gotten the mark earlier than that, but it didn't hurt when I play until fairly recently.
So does every violin player have a similar mark under his or her chin? Does it hurt you when you put your violin under your chin? If so, what do you do to remedy that? I tried putting lotion on every night, but it's not helping much. Any advice would be appreciated.
