Mr. Whiskers Lives for Another Day
I hope it's not a case of misery loves company, but I do tend to see conditions in groups. Take this last week, for example. At the beginning of the week, it was "post-nasal drip" time, and at the end of the week, positive reactions to cat. Most people who have allergic reactions to cats know well enough that they are sensitive around Mr. Whiskers - sneezing, itchy watery eyes, or itchy skin. But for those who suffer from recurrent sinus infections, or post-nasal drip, they are often aware of any triggers. It's in those patients that we can find positive reactions to dust, mold or pet dander. Even though you may test positive, I know it's going to be heartbreaking not to allow your kitty to sleep on the pillow anymore, but you may feel a lot better if you do.
