Cat Allergies.
 
Hi guys, I've been having this horrible rashes all over my leg and now in my tummy. At first I thought I got the ringworm from Chico. But now I think it's cat allergies. I looked it up in the net and I saw pics too. But I well go to the doctor and see what he things and what I will need to get red of it.

I always had an itch in my throat but never rashes so It's better to be sure than me going it cos Chico, no Lilly, no chico, no lilly, .. lol

And the wearied thing is since I got Lilly I didn't have any itch in my throat. And I was so happy about that, but than the rash happened. :(

Did anyone who has cats had this happened too?

i get bumps and itchy throat from my bf's cat when i'm over his place ;) he told me yoohoo worked for the itchy throat but as of the bumps when the cat's hair touches my skin...first off pull it out and then benadryl. benadryl helps a lot :shock:

oh no, I hope you're not allergic to your new kitty!! You can try an antihistamine. Benadryl will work but make you sleepy. You might need a prescription allergy medicine if you aren't feeling better soon.

I will look up benadryl. Thank you pigeonsheep. :)
I never thought to take yoohoo for an itchy throat, I will also tray that if I get it.

I hope not too. :(
I'm hopping the doctor well give me a cream and prescription allergy medicine. I hope it clears out soon. It so hard not to itch. And if I do there is no stopping me.

lol . benadryl does make u drowsy but beats being itchy throated and all if u dont have a prescription ;) and yes yoohoo! who would've known...it works esp when the cat hair gets stuck in ur throat...speaking from experience! and it's yummy too ;) one of the best meds i've taken...haha :D oh also if u are indeed allergic to ur cat...proven facts that u can get immume to the allergy...u can get used to it over time and it'll go away...just dont know how much time though :)

Oh no, I hope not. My Mom is pretty allergic to cats and she has three of them. She does take claritin, I think. It might be a different one. Oh, you poor girl. When I itch, I nearly scratch myself to death. I'm horrible. Let us know what the Dr. says hon.

Chico's Mum 05-27-2009 02:56 PM

I will. Thank you Robin.
I will go to the hospital today. I hate needles. :(

I wont give her up I really bonded with her and since she had the worms in her ears and she is so skinny and me looking after her and giving her meds and stuff it just got me more closer to her. I adore her.

One thing is for sure I wont work out as a foster mom for pets because I will be keeping them all. :D

I believe that. My dad was allergic to cats when I was younger. We had a cat growing up and one day It just went away. No meds nothing.
I just hope mine goes too.
