My boyfriend has cat SEVERE cat allergies and I recently received a cat as a present from a family member. Is there any medication or remedy out there that he take and still be around me and my cat and be able to come to my house and actually be able to come inside?

I have cat allergies too and my daughter has two cats. It's really difficult there is nothing that really works perfectly. Not even a little. I take an antihistamine, and that helps a bit, but the only real thing that helps is a shower when I get home and some allergy meds. I get shots for seasonal allergies and dogs and cats and still that doesn't help me much.

Wish I had better news, although everyone is different, your boyfriend should talk to his doctor about what can be done to help him!

Good luck.
