Ugh, that is unpleasant.

We had the same problem and it seemed to be related to cold.  Puppets
that went on tour in the winter got frozen overnight often and the
ones that didn't go on tour didn't seem to develop the same problems.

Incidentally, this can be  problem with neoprene over the long haul, too.

Yours,
Mary
