I would say you have an allergy to something in the blood. I have heard of people being allergic to hemoglobin from different animals. Your sure your not allergic to just deer?

We bloody people (sometimes bad) for their first deer and over the years with all the cleaning I've seen
tons of people getting deer blood on em (no gloves) and I've never heard of any itching.

I've never had a problem with it nor ever heard of that problem. Kinda wierd. Have you tried looking it up on any of the WebMD type sites? Just a thought...
