Mine do too; after I wash the dishes you can see every place I've been quilled on my palms!

I am allergic to pollen and animal dander, so when I get poked with a quill it does push this into my skin and I get a red slightly itchy rash. Usually just washing it with anti-bac soap and drying it off does the trick, but if I get a serious quilling (like during a nail-clipping adventure) Benadryl works wonders! This just means no hedgies under my shirts but they don't seem to mind blanket snuggles
