Talking might be allergic to dog

i have a question i hope some might be able to answer. at the moment my nose feels like it is on fire, you know that feeling when it is extremely fresh outside and you take a deep breath, well my nose feels like that all the time, now i think there are one or two causes to this and i would like to know if anyone out there has the same thing, i am from europe and recently moved to north america, it is a lot colder here than i am used to, so maybe my nose is adjusting to the extreme cold, two i recently got a small pet, a dog that is meant to be good for people with allergies, i have minor hay fever but does not really bother me even during the summer here, now actually another thing is i just also moved to a new place, so it could be three things, i cant remember if my nose was sore before i got the dog, and it also began to get really cold just when i got the dog, so please let me know if there is anyone with same, thank you

Hi,Sounds like you are definately allergic to something. As for your dog,if I knew the breed type I could give you better advice as to making it less of an allergic threat to you. Most importantly,you need to feed a high quality premium dogfood rich in omega fatty acids.Plus you must keep your dog bathed ,& groomed depending on coat type as to keep the dog from tracking more allergens into your home. If you keep your pets healthy,you will achieve a healthy haircoat in the pets which keeps pet dander to a minimum. Usually it is the dander that causes the problems. Good luck with figuring out what is causing your problems.

Re: might be allergic to dog


I have a mild allergy to dogs also. It is actually the dander (as mentioned above) that we react to.
Some things to help- other than mentioned above is 1) Do not allow the dog to go in your bedroom. That will provide you with at least 8 hrs a day that you do not come in contact with the allergens. 2) Purchase a product that you can put on your dog that helps to neutralize the dander allergens. (Allercare has one) 3) You can be tested for dog allergy by skin testing at an allergists office- and if you turn out positive to it- allergy injections do help.
