has anyone ever heard of being allergic to leather?

My sister recently gave me a leather sofa she has had for about 10 years. I am allergic to dogs, and she has a large golder retreiver, but since it was leather, I did not think I would have a problem. I have vacuumed it and cleaned it a couple times, but still after 2 weeks, I am having some pretty severe allergic reactions when I am on the couch. I am starting to think I am allergic to leather. Has anyone heard of a leather allergy?? Do you think it is still just dander on the couch from her dog??

Has it been cleaned with a leather cleaner? That may be your problem. Try cleaning it with mild unscented soap & rinse well, let dry & cover it with an old quilt for a few days. Then try it again.

Leather is cured with a host of chemicals and FORMALDEHYDE.

CH2O, I like to call it poison water cannot be detoxified or broken down. It will remain with the leather for as long as the leather is leather. You might be having a reaction to the toxin.
