Pets Allergies

I have an allergy, probably this is because of some pollen or some sort of, we don’t keep pets in our house because I am worried I would also get an allergy from pets.
I was de-cluttering my daughter’s room one day when I found this article in one of her school magazine.
I didn’t know I had allergies before until now, yet I also don’t know if I have pet allergies too. This is what I learned from the article. Proteins from the hair, saliva, urine or poop of animals can cause allergy. Cats and dogs are the common source of allergies.
You will know that you have pet allergy when you come in contact with an animal and experience the statement mentioned below.
  • Itchy and watery eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Frequent sneezing
  • Coughing and wheezing
  • Itchy skin and rashes
If you want to make sure that you have allergies, you better go to a doctor and undergo a series of test allergies. It is better to know what allergies you have so you know which one to avoid.
