We got a new golden retriever puppy a week ago. My 20 month old daughter has eczema in the typical spots - behind the knees, wrists and ankles. Since we brought the dog home she has been itchy all over!!! And when she has really been rolling around with him her eyes get red and her face gets blotchy. What can I do!!?? She was around other goldens before with no reaction and so this a surprise to us. We have 2 other children that would be CRUSHED if we had to give the pup up. We have hardwood floors and we are pretty clean people but it is unrealistic to keep them apart (they love each other). Is there any products that are safe? Also, I have heard that she may become immuned eventually. Anyone have any ideas about that? My main concern is that because it is related to eczema, that she will develop asthma. Anyone have any experience with that. So far the reaction is strictly itchy skin but I am watching her closely!!

Help!! I love my puppy!!
