I think im allergic to my cat - HELP.?
I was just patting my new cat and started feeling a little ichy on my hands/arms and chest. After I put her down I washed my hands and realised I have patches on my arms and chest that are red with lumps. (And my nose running as well.) I have a feeling I am allergic to our beautiful cat.
Does anyone know if there is some thing I can take to help so as I can keep cuddling my new cat???
I REALLY do not want to get rid of her!

Im trying not to scratch though...

By the time you scratch half of your skin off, you'll get rid of the cat. Survival of the fittest! The cat's winning so far...
You could get allergy shots, but it'll be cheaper to get a pet you're not allergic to.


open mind
look my dear, their is a vaccination to solve ur problem just make this vacination and see a docteur,

cause ur cat need u also

best answer no ???

Well, you can take some kind of OTC allergy Medication. I am allergic to the dog we currently have, but I take the Equate brand "Chlortabs" from Wal*Mart, they work great for pretty much all allergies and they're pretty cheap.

Boy that's hard! I would feel awful if I were allergic to our loving kitties too!

There are treatments you can get from the doctor to lessen the reaction to the cat dander. Or you could try Benedryl. And try to keep your kitty very clean, and feed her a high-quality food: That will help her shed less and make less dander.

Good luck!

Take some Benadryl for starters. You sound like you've never been exposed to cats before, just give it a couple of weeks if your reaction isn't too severe (right now it just sounds like contact hives and sniffles). Your body will get used to it. It also may not be the cat at all, and possibly flea medicine she was treated with before you brought her home. I grew up around cats and never had a problem until I moved out of the house. Once I went to visit my dad and picked up my kitty and I broke out in hives and couldn't stop coughing. You get used to the allergens that you're around after awhile. After I moved into a place that allowed cats, it took me about 2 weeks to settle down after getting kitty.

Cat allergies are tough when you have a pet you adore. My sister is allergic to cats, but that has never stopped her from keeping them as pets. If it is really bad, you can take an OTC antihistamine, maybe Claritin (i'm not sure if this will work) that is non drowsy so that your allergies don't go crazy whenever you pet your kitty. I am a cat lover, and I think I would do anything to keep my cats around, so I sympathize. Good luck!

same here. I don't have to even touch the cat...I will start to sneeze...then I get hives, and then I cannot breathe. Unless you intend to go to allergist and have them give you a continuous shot for this...kitty has to go. Besides...this is serious..I have even been hospitalized from having my kitty...and I keep a VERY clean house...so imagine when the cat dander builds???? Is the cat worth the headache? Find kitty a new loving home, and get something that won't affect your allergies. Sorry.....but good luck
