Allergic Reaction to Linseed Oile

I had three guitars repaired. The repairman used linseed oil on all three guitars. As soon as I started to play them the left side of my throat became swollen and my left ear began to hurt. I played the guitars again the next day and the same thing happened.

Has anyone ever heard of anything like this before?

Thanks.

No.
And I got my undergrad BFA in painting (surrounded by other oil painters).
Never heard on an allergy.
Do you have any other reaction to flax or linen?

I was hit by a parked car, what's your excuse?

Weird, I’ve never heard of that. I’ve used Linseed oil on my fretboards since the ‘70s.

I have lots and lots of allergies (basically everything that is green and grows), but I've never heard of this one. That doesn't mean that it isn't possible, of course.
