I'm allergic to cats, is there any way to get rid of this allergy?
I'm allergic to cats, but I don't wanna be, where I live there are LOTS of cats, and I can't touch them without havine to sneeze and scare them away (Im not allergic to dogs though, I have one). I hear you can develop a tolerance, but can you really? If not, then can some one PLEASE tell me how to stop this allergy. That way, me, the cats and the owners will be happy.

Make sure the house is always clean- the proteins that you are most allergic to from the cats is in their saliva and waste, so stay away from the litter box and water bowls, and make sure the owner keeps both very clean. dont let the cats in your bedroom. power clean for a day- dust, sweep and mop every surface and then do this on a regular basis. you can develop an immunity but it might take a while. there are some otc meds that you can try, claritan etc or prescription zyrtec these may make you feel loopy though. otherwise there is no way to get rid of an allergy good luck

Same issue! I'm allergic to cats but have 2 for 2 years now! I'm on Allegra everyday and now if I miss a pill the cats do not bother me as much. They sleep on my lap, I pet them and so forth with no bothers unless they happen to scratch me, then the site of the scratch does swell/get red but nothing else. It's worth a try but all people are different and you might react differently, but is definately a HUGE difference than before the Allegra!

Go see your GP.

if you know you will be coming in contact with cats, take a Benedryl before touching them

My deepest sympathies! It's got to be miserable!

There is no sure-fire cure for allergies. But an allergist can give you treatments that can lessen the severity of the symptoms, and of course there are other medicines you can use.

Good luck!

Take some medicine

Try looking into Allergy shot or immunotherapy. This is a long term fix to your problem but does require a bit commitment on your part. You would get allergy shots that contain tiny amounts of cat allergen and starting with a minute amount, you would get shots weekly. This continue for about a year. Each shot will contain more and more of what you are allergic to. After one year, you generally can go further between shots. Most people finish immunotherapy with in 3 years but some take as long as 5 years. Once completed, immunotherapy " cures" your allergy to whatever you received shots for.

I hope this helps! Email if you want more detail!

So sorry, I love cats..
You can't get rid of a cat allergy. You can undergo treatment from a board certified allergist and may be able to become less sensitive to their dander, but treatment takes years. But as always, the primary and most effective treatment for cat allergy is removing the source...the cats. In this case, however, it sounds like you would have to be the one to move!
There are medications known as antihistamines that can help some people significantly. Some are prescription only, some are over the counter, like Claritin and now Zyrtec.
Good luck...

If you are willing to go the medical route, you can do immunotherapy by going to an allergy doctor.

Otherwise, check google for "Detoxification" and "natural remedies allergies" Revolutionhealthstore.com has something called Pet Allergy, but there are other products.
