Is there a test you can take to see if your allergic to cats?
can your doctor do a test to see if your allergic to cats? I think my daughter is allergic to them

I think you can do a CT-scan (or cat scan) to test if you're allergic to things. My friend had one done and found out he's allergic to grass, cats, nuts, and a few other things.

go sniff a cat

kelsooooooo! =P
sniff catass. :)

just reading your question makes me stuffy

yes its called the stick a cat in your face and see what happens test... but in all serious take her to the doc and they can run allergy tests

I think there is. I think they run your blood through a series of tests to see if there is a reaction.

Debbie A.
i think the doctors can, or you could find a cat and bring it to her :)

The Dr can do a test to see what she is allergic to. It''s done with little scratches on the back, I'd try her first around a cat, just watch what reactions she has, to watering eyes, runny nose, sneezing, just make sure her mouth and throat doesn't swell, if she starts to, go to ER immediately. Or call EMS. Good Luck

OCPD is me!
i dont think there is a safe one but you are near a doctor so id imagine itd be ok

Tell her to sniff a cat.

um yea.

ur doctor can stick needles in your back :)

get a cat

Go to petsmart and ask to pet a cat, or go to a petstore and ask to pet a cat...

its not as easy as Just sniffing a cat...its not the actually hair that we are allergic to...its the cats saliva that they put on their fur that we react to, she needs to be near enough to a hospital or make sure someone has an addrenaline needle thing to be sure her throat doesn't close over...i get alot of swelling in the face and my arms also some in the throat so just be carefull!!!...only thing you can do is to have her in a room with cats and let her pat them...she doesn't need to sniff them....
i dont think there is anything a doc can do in the way of finding out.

yes, they probably would have to draw blood. thats what they did to me.

Go near a cat. Wait, observe.

You would need to see an allergist most likely. They actually can test for nearly any allergy, but you can specifically ask for a cat test. They stick small needles in your back and inject the chemical version of the allergen into your skin. It doesn't hurt. I've had 4 in my life (I'm 20) the most recent one being last year. It feels like they're writing on your back with a pen. If she is allergic to cats, the skin around the injection site will turn red and be itchy. If she has a severe reaction, she is at an allergy clinic, they'll be able to do something, but generally, they don't give you enough to cause a severe allergy. They also rate each allergy on the test from 1-4 (some offices have a scale of 5) and each one tells you how badly she is allergic to it. My cat allergy, for example, is 2. I can be around cats for a while, but I get the sniffles and my eyes itch. I can visit people with cats, but I shouldn't own one. After this, you may be given the option to put her on allergy shots to help her develop an immunity to all of her allergies. I'm terrifies of needles, and when I was a kid, they just made sure that I didn't physically see them.
Just a nice thing to know:
If you do put her on allergy shots (assuming she is allergic to cats) make sure that you don't have her near anything that she is highly allergic to because it will be a little worse than usual because of the chemicals in her system.

yep sure is go to your doctor and ask them for an allergen test they stick needles in ur back and find out wat u are allergic to

find an allergist...they do allergy testing and tell you everything you are allergic to. It's kind of expensive so I hope you would have insurance. I have been tested 3 times and it's kinda painful..as they poked my back like 64 times and injected my arms 25 times..but each place I have done it it has been different....anyway I highly recommend seeing an allergy dr.

Yes there is a test for everything from cats to mold to dust, you should be calling an advice nurse and making an app, because it could be more serious than allergies, prolonged exposure to allergies can cause asthma.

Yes you can have your daughter tested for most allergies with a simple blood test
