Re: Cure for cat allergy?
When I was doing adoption counseling at my local shelter, if we had someone that wasn't sure about allergies, we would have them do a 'towel test'. We would rub a towel on the cat they were interested in and the person was to wear that towel around their neck for a couple days and sleep with it on their pillow. If they didn't have an issue, great. If they had an issue, they were to take their allergy medication and continue to wear the towel and see how it went.
I believe I have a minor cat allergy (never been tested) and also believe I'm allergic to mold and dust mites. The cat allergy never really seems to bother me unless the mold and dust mites are bad, then the cats can send me over the edge. I do agree that some cats are more of a problem than others, at least for me. There were times I'd go in the shelter and pick up one particular cat and have a really bad reaction. I also had a hard time when I went from 2 cats to 3, it took me a couple months to adjust and go back to normal.
I've been taking Claritin or Alavert for my allergies for years, but this year changed to Zyrtec and it's way better. I used to have massive sneezing fits every day, multiple times a day, the worst was in the morning and now I sneeze maybe a couple times a week.
