Allergies are not completely understood by the medical community. Of course there is very good development in the field of allergy but we can’t say complete knowledge and the ways and means eliminating allergic reactions are gained. It is a wonder to know, that some of the experts in allergy medications are sufferer themselves. Their expertise emerges out of their own experience, observation and understanding.
Cat allergy symptoms are manifested in many forms. The allergic reactions may be noticed alone or in combination. They appear and disappear with no apparent reason. Hence one may think that he is suffering from common cold or sore throat, but in reality it is cat allergy. The alleric reaction may be a rash which may respond to tropical medication or not. The allergic reaction may be sneezing and the sufferer may associate it with dust or pollen grain.
At times the symptom may be ringing ear, sneezing fits, burning eyes, watering eyes, sore throat, running nose, skin rashes etc. hold on, if you are cat owner and have any one or combination of these symptoms on a regular basis, then you may be the one who is suffering from cat allergy. Not to worry, there is no need to disown your lovely pet. You can reduce the suffering with the help of medications and still own your lovely pet cat.
One may wonder what the culprit is. The culprit may be the skin flakes of the cat or the hair. The cat has the habit of licking the hair most of the time thus spreading that stuff all around the house inducing the allergy. If you want to confirm cat allergy symptoms, you need to remove the cat from the house for two weeks and clean the house completely using vacuum cleaning. If the allergic symptoms disappear without medication then you can confirm that you are allergic to cat.
