    Default Allergic to my bully????

    I think I may be allergic to Layla. Everytime she touches my skin for longer than a second or two I get an itchy, burning feeling in that area. This only happens when she actually makes contact with my skin just being around her is fine. I have 3 bullies but this doesnt happen with the other two. She is my cuddle baby and I cant imagine that changing so I guess Im going to have to start taking Claritin also. How weird is it to be allergic to one but not the others?????


    I couldnt imagine not being able to do this anymore....I would rather be itchy!!

    Wow that is odd, does she feel different or have dander? I am visualizing you in a plastic bubble playing on the floor with Layla right now.

    that is strange. I think I am allergic to Chester..since we got him my eyes have itched and I sneeze quite often (similar to what happens when I am around cats). I told my husband, and he said he'd have my mail forwarded to where ever I moved to

    I have been told it's a dander some animals have that we are actually allergic to not necessarily the animal, so yes, perhaps she has whatever that dander is that you are allergic to.

    I'm allergic to most cats, but have actually met a couple that didn't bother me at all.
    I got my son a Guinea pig once that it ended up both he and I were so allergic to that we had to re-home it, although he had watched a friends g.p. Prior to getting him one and never shows any signs of being allergic.

    I wonder if perhaps a bath in a shampoo like selsin blue would be helpful?

    My daughter is allergic to cats she is fine with Silva as long as she doesnt lick her. If she licks her arm or leg she will break out in a white bumpy rash and she itches like crazy. I usually goes away quickly. So Silva knows not to lick Addison!

    LOL Everything we use to groom comes from CPP. Everything is natural...including her food. She has many allergies herself. We are finally to the point where her skin looks great. This just started happening a couple months ago. I have been in denial until now.
    @desertskybulldogs ....bubble wrap is an idea!!!

    Oh yes.. cat dander is one thing.. I itch, sneeze..etc. But cat saliva - I would go into anaphylactic shock with One time my sister's cat bit me and I was swollen and hives from head to toe

    Odd but it can happen. if it only just started a little bit ago there has to be a connection. i can't imagine you would all of a sudden get an allergy to her but who knows...

    Hugs. Hope you get better or at least can tolerate it so you can snuggle.

    You should try Claritin. My husband is very allergic to cats, and so whenever he goes to visit his daughter, who has a couple cats, she gives him Claritin and it work great.

    I was like this with Bentley. I think it was the texture of his fur because I was not like this with Linus and so far, so good with Truman. But cuddling with Bentley would produce an itchy, red area - that looked a lot like hives. I recommend trying Zyrtec, since it helps specifically with indoor (pet) allergies but nothing has helped me as much as Benadryl, although it makes me tired.
