    Adding on another allergy for DS2
    crunk05177 posted:
    While at my brother in law's house this weekend, we discovered Nathan is also allergic to cats! They have 5! My sister in law's mother lives with them and keeps the house VERY clean. You honestly wouldn't even know they had smell, very minimal fur and they hide under the bed when company is there. Well the first night there, Nathan's eyes were swollen and had some hives but he wasn't itching so we just left it and he was fine in the morning (we slept at a hotel). The second night we went there, he was looking for the cats under the bed....picking up the dust ruffle and sticking his head under. Instantly, his eyes became itchy, swollen, bright red, and watery. Then his nose started going too! Washing his hands and face and a teaspoon of benadryl worked wonders thankfully!! What else can we add to his list of allergies? Peanuts, egg yolk, egg white, cats be continued

    Oh no! It does seem like a constantly changing list sometimes, doesn't it?

    How is it going otherwise? Are you having any trouble controlling the food allergens? Did you have a good turkey day?

    Oh, that's too bad. Allergies are no fun!

    Hopefully he won't be allergic to any other animals with fur....
