They say when your allergic to animals it's really in their saliva and because cats lick themselves clean all the time you could still have some of their hair in your couch. You might want to think about getting a new one if you possibly can, just a suggestion. Have you had your place professionally cleaned (a cleaning service) that would be my other suggestion. You would not believe where you'll find cat hair, other than in the cat (lol).
I'm really allergic to dogs, can't get to near them. Clarinex and Astelin help me when I have to be around dogs.
Have you had allergy testing done recently? If not maybe you should consider allergy testing.
Take care, good luck keep us all posted. Hopefully you'll find something to help you.

That sounds awful. I guess you can consider whether you want to take the Western medicene route (expensive, harsh, doesn't address root of problem) or some alternative method (nutrition/vitamins, unproven methods such as NAET). I have allergies and asthma but I refuse to medicate it (expensive, nasty side effects, possibly dangerous). I never thought that battling with my immune system is prudent or the correct path.

If you feel like you have allergies, something is causing them and usually that is the first recommended step (finding out what you are allergic to). Hold on to hope, sometimes injuries or other things wrong with your body go away for no apparent reason. It's a funny thing. It never hurts to look into healthier living (diet, exercise, etc.). Best wishes, econ
