    Default Why am i now allergic to my bully?

    When i hug my bully or if he kisses me my arms, neck and chin are breaking out in 1/4 bumps all over. I take allergy pills and it goes away but it didnt happen until last night and today. Do you think he has a yeast problem? Or something?

    Could he have rolled in something outside that you're allergic to??

    Have you bathed him lately and maybe the shampoo residue isn't to your liking? Just thought. It is odd that an allergy would surface unexpectedly like this. As previously mentioned, maybe he got into something and it disagrees with your skin.
    Maybe if you bathe him in something like Johnsons Baby Shampoo and rinse thoroughly this will take care of the problem.

    GL!

    I washed him in maleseb, hopefully that takes care of the problem. Just wanted to see if anyone else experienced this before! Thank you!

    I bought some conditioner for FTSE when he was a babie and I would get hay fever from it could it be something like this that you have only just started to use as it's strange to develop an allergy to Walt all of a sudden

    I know right? Yeah ive only been using maleseb to keep other skin issues at bay which have been good. But we did move into a house with a yard, so i dont know if there is dirt or something back there getting on him im allergic to.

    I would think it's more outside blooming things or an environmental
    allergen you're sensitive to, may have to wipe him down when he comes
    inside.

    Very interesting, please update us!

    My Prettyone has the same issues , we have never found out what it is other them a allergic reaction to short haired dogs , My son has a Rat Terrier again short haired and she gets the same when touching him . With us it is only a fur touching reaction not from licking . She has grown a tollerence to it after a few years and it is not as severe as when it first occurred she does not take anything for it mind . Gl with it , The Prettyone knows I will not get rid of the Bulldogs so we live with it and it really is not to bad of a reaction here
    YOU MIGHT BE A BULLDOG IF...

    ...everyone else in a room with you is pinching their noses
    ...you snore like a chain saw.
    ...it takes too much energy to beg
    ...your snore is louder than your bark
    ...you have never seen your tail...what is a tail anyways?
    ...you're the loudest snorer in the house.

    Could be the shampoo, dander or other allergens in your area that are sticking to the coat. I am allergic to Harlea and our rabbits but not our cats. I get weekly shots and just deal with it like I have all my life which does tend to suck.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I used to break out in a rash on my arms when I would give Chumly a hug..... but it was only in the mornings and not every day! It was really weird and I never did figure out what it was. It never stopped me though! It also happened with a Springer Spaniel we had years ago. I think it must have been dander.

    Were you always allergic to your bully or just new? Like how old is your dog and/or is this issue new?

    I will react to Diesel just touching him. My neck and face will get really warm quickly and my skin will turn bright red for a couple minutes afterwards. Totally worth the inconvenience. Odd though, Daisy (yellow lab) eats the same food, bathes with the same shampoo and everything- no reaction to her.
