My cat allergy, which I have had since I was seven, now triggers asthma attacks. I now have to use a ventolin inhaler after only 5-30 minutes in a home with a cat. I have tried allegra, reactin, claritin, benadryl, and chlorotriplon with little success. My inlaws and most of my friends all have cats. I have heard many times "why don't you just take something before you come over?" Unfortunately for me, that doesn't work all that well, besides, being half alseep at someone's house isn't that much fun anyway. It has come to the point where I only stay in a home with a cat for a few minutes unless absolutely necessary, but this stand sometimes offends. Any thoughts on a better way of handling this?
