My question to you all is. Can a person possible have an allergy to a pet Hamster. The reason that I am wondering is. My family and I, purchased a pet Hamster December 15th, at a pet store. I have noticed in the last few days when I am playing and holding our hamster (lucky) I have been coughing and some wheeze. Then after I have washed my hands and Lucky is back in his cage it all is ok then.
Could this simply be all in my head? or something all different that the hamster that could be triggering the cough? suggestions? advice? Thanks, Brandi.
