Violin hickey’s are common, some players treat it like a badge of honor that they practice enough to get them. But truly you don’t have to put your body through pain to be good. A cloth should do the trick. If not maybe you need to experiment with different chin rests. I used to get an allergic reaction from the metal clip of my chin rest before I switched to the Wittner brand.
