Here is one area where I'm almost glad I'm a girl!
If you put nail polish on the reed any moisture that gets behind it can cause it to 'bubble' and flake/peel off.
Sometimes this happens when I wear nail polish and wash dishes by hand.
It's also not very flexable and could cause issues with the reeds' responsiveness.

Cane is actually a grass like bamboo. Allergies to 'grasses' are pretty common.
There is a liquid 'band aid' called Nu Skin. You may be able to paint that on your lip where the reed sits.
Read the box to see if it's safe to use on or near the lips. I haven't tried it on any cuts or scrapes so I can't attest to how well it works.

There are so many different 'brands' and forms of liquid band aids. Spray on, paint on. drops...
Be careful and read the directions on the box. Some contain ingredients that should not be ingested.
But I think if you are careful you might be ok!
Good luck in finding a suitable soulution.
