Diane Posted February 4, 2008 Share Posted February 4, 2008 Have your or any of your children had allergies to dog and cats and suddenly been over that allergy? My Son was fine from birth until age 5. Suddenly, we started to pet sit where the dog would come here, and he started with hives on his eyelids, sneezing, wheezing, etc...I didn't completely shelter him from animals, but always had to give him benadryl before visiting my Mother in law who has 3 little dogs that he adores. His allergies used to be so bad that his nose would literally run like a faucet. Recently, we've been going to my MIL's and no problems what so ever. No more sneezing, watery eyes, hives, etc...nothing in her environment has changed. I'm a little in shock, and quite relieved. My Son LOVES animals and often says he wants to be a vet. We'd love to get a little pup, but the idea of getting one and then allergies bothering him scare me. Medicating my son for life is out of the question. I'd love to hear recovery stories. :) Thanks!
