Hello, I'm new to this and need some help if anyone can please!

I have recently started seeing someone that seems to be allergic to my cats resulting in him having to take his inhaler alot and coughing up green mucas for up to a week after being in my house!
Before he met me his asthma was very mild only ever causing him grief when he had a cold, like my asthma does!
I found a website and brought some sprays for the air, and soft furnishings, and wipes for the cats, and the first weekend he came round afterwards he was better, still had to take his inhaler, but not as bad, but then this weekend he was only in my house for 2hours and he was terrible again!
Tried Piriteze with no effect, and sudafed decongestant for his nose!
Could it be worse due to the decorating I'm doing and the air freshner I used combined with the cats, and is there anything he can take that'd help us get through one weekend together without him nearly dying on me and feeling like rubbish for a week afterwards! I really don't want to lose him, but I can't give up my cats either, and can't go to his all the time cos of my 6 year old son!
Can anyone help please?????????

That's a dilemma. The next time he comes to visit don't use any air freshener or redecorating. Try to keep the cats to one area that he doesn't go to. Maybe he can start allergy shots?

Usually I don't, but it just happened that I accidently left one switched on! Allergy shots sound expensive and painful, are there any really good Anti histimines you can buy over the counter or get from the doctors??

Zyrtec might help. Some people like allergra.
Allergy shots are not painful. They don't go deep. My shots were free thanks to my insurance.
