Full Abstract: There are numerous characteristic skin symptoms that are common in musicians and are usually harmless marks of their profession. There are, however, many less frequent and more serious skin diseases that are due either to mechanical irritation and other physical noxae or to allergic and non-allergic contact reactions. Professional musicians can be affected by other skin diseases that cause serious problems and ultimately put an end to their career. This applies especially to lip diseases in woodwind and brass players.
