    Maybe put a soft cloth over the tail of the violin. That happened with me once.

    Maybe is because you’re gripping the violin too hard with your neck, because it shouldn’t hurt

    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.
