I'm allergic to my cat. I take antihistamines. Is it likely the allergy will get worse/more severe with time?
Pam - No, I don't think that would make it worse. So it would be fine to carry on with antihistamines, but cat allergy can get worse if you constantly expose yourself to cat, providing your allergy is on the severe side. So, it can get worse and worse, so it’s best to minimise exposure. But the opposite of that is that people with very mild cat allergy can actually be okay, providing they have constant but low exposure to their own cat.
Personally I would be concerned about the need to chronically take antihistamines because of exposure to your cat.
bathe the cat once a week...........& good luck CZARCAR, Wed, 25th May 2011
