I'm assuming you're allergic to the strings, man. Something in them at least. Try changing them if you've got the money and know how to.

That, or you've got yourself a cursed harp. o.O

Try "Fast Fret" Rub it on your strings and it should put a coating around your strings. Although, don't take my word for this, if you are allergic, this could possibly make it worse.

This might just be me being stupid but...

Isn't he talking about a harmonica? I've never heard of a harp in the classical sense being made specifically for blues, but I have heard the harmonica be called a blues harp before.

In which case, you need to dismantle your harp, and dip all the parts in some normal household anti-bacterial solution, there's obviously some *** in there that is living well off you. Harmonicas are generally quite easy to take apart and put back together again.
I remember having a similar problem when I used to play trombone, and the answer was to dip the whole thing in a bath of cleaning solution which killed all the germs off.

Good luck!

I have a harmonica from hohner, a special 20. Is yours a harmonica? I get cracked lips when I play it, of course that can get resolved though. But you need to clean it, I'm sure you do but try unscrewing it open on the ends, give it a throughal wash and screw it back together. But be aware of the problem I think there is, when we play harmonica we use our mouth a lot (I know, obviously!) but that's where we get air come in without a proper clean, so that's a major problem tha's hard to solve if we're getting a little ill from the air. I reccomend don't play with your operation booked, I know what you mean I get colds that last a while most the time I play.

...hmm...here's a thought, in future harmonica players should use our nose!

I also get sick from harmonicas but not every time I play. Definetely clean it and chew gum or use limon es bueno para todo.
