My 14 year old has CIU and it has spread rapidly to her face and body in a horrible and worst flare up in 3 yrs. We put her on Xolair last month, which I am worried about in general and want her off.
She tested allergic to cats, and we have a cat. Two allergists said her condition is not from the cat at all. She has no symptoms of watery eyes, itching, nasal inflammation associated with cats. We have had a cat in the house since her birth and it was at 10 years old she had a hive issue---so really 10 years with no hives.
I cannot help but think it's the cat.....what do your doctors tell you about keeping an allergen around someone with hives?
