Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

True allergy to wool jumper is very rare and the symptoms that may possibly occur after wearing the wool jumper are due to the mechanics of the wool fiber itself that irritate the skin.

However, allergy to wool can also be seen and your symptoms can be due to wool allergy particularly if you are having these symptoms after you wore the wool jumper. You should take an antihistamine like Benadryl or Allegra and also do cold compress on the rash for the relief of symptoms. You can apply calamine lotion to soothe the rash.

Take care.
