Ok it may sound silly but since my daughter has had her hamster I have been having bad asthma in the evenings again. Now i do know that animals can trigger allergies, but the thing is it is such a tiny russian hamster (I dont touch him or even look at him much !) he is in the living room in the evenings cos hes too noisy for her to keep in her room at night so he stays in the living room.
she cleans him out regulary but i wondered if it was the smell, even tho he gets cleaned out regularly he stinks and i think the amonia smell is effecting my asthma, could this be the case ? - it just seems strange that i havent needed my steroids for about 5 months but the past 3-4wks since shes had the hamster i keep using my ventolin esp at night and occasionally in the day, so think i should start using the steroids again.
