I suspect that you are probably low on iron. Do a little test. Take a solid gold ring like your Mom's wedding ring and rub it across your cheek and see if it leaves a mark. It'll look like a pencil mark. It is not uncommon for females, especially in their teenage years, to be low on iron. You may need to change you diet and eat more red meat, or take an iron supplement. Another thing you can do is to put some clear fingernail polish on the rim of the mouthpiece, eliminating your skin's contact to the gold.
