When would you be able to tell if your child is allergic to your pets?

What can I do next?

HAVE YOUR DOCTOR LOOK AT HIM. ALLERGIES CAN LEAD TO ASTHMA, SO IF YOU ARE UNSURE MAYBE LET THE ANIMAL STAY WITH A RELATIVE A COUPLE OF DAYS, CLEAN REAL GOOD AND FOR A COUPLE DAYS WATCH YOUR CHILD TO SEE IF THERE IS DIFFERNCE. THAT IS PROBABLY TH E SAFEST THING BECAUSE THEY DO HAVE SHOTS FOR THOSE KINDS OF ALLERGIES, I JUST DO NOT KNOW IF THEY GIVE THEM TO CHILDREN THAT YOUNG. CLEANING THE HOUSE OF ALL ANIMAL DANDER AND DUST AND THEN SEEING IF YOUR CHILD IS DIFFERENT IS PROBABLY THE EST WAY. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A RELATIVE, TRY A SHELTER FOR A COUPLE DAYS. GOOD LUCK AND GOD BLESS

Well I heard that already having animals in your house when you bring a newborn home, they build up the immunity towards animals, basically they have a lesser chance of being allergic.

If your child is sneezing alot and coughing then I would call your DR. but if there arent any signs of that I wouldnt worry, I have 1 cat and 1 dog and my son seems OK, hes been around the animals since he was a newborn.

Good Luck

If your child sneezes when around the animal then there is a possibility that they are allergic to the animal. Or if their eyes are red and puffy after being around the animal. We learned when I was 13 that I was allergic to long haired animals. Just keep a close eye on the child and please let me know how things turn out. You can e-mail me at [email protected]____.com

what makes you think he may have alerfies? If you have symptoms, take him to the family doctor. It could be from foods. so remember when you start him on foods, begin with veggies and use one kind at a time for two weeks and then add another one. If you think it's the pets, keep him away from them for a few days and see if things change

I would call your nurse.. tell them what is what.. IF anything they will refere you to an allergiest..
They even at this age can do bloodtest to see if your child is allergic to fluffy or fido....

It takes about a tube of blood... but they can test...

Good luck!!!

My daughter started having symptoms of cat allergies when she was about 2, but she had never been around animals enough prior to that for me to see if she had any reactions. SHe is 8 now, and she only has to be around a cat for a few minutes before she starts sneezing and coughing very badly. Her eyes turn red and start watering. I know they are able to do testing through her doctor for food allergies, but I'm not sure if they can do the same for pet allergies. It may be worth checking into though.
