Cats Allergies

Today let's about one of the several types of human alergies: Cats allergies.

Everyone loves cats, they are a sweet animal. So, what can cause an allergie?

Well, it can be a cat allergie or to other pet, since about 10% of the population has pet allergies.
People with cat allergies are allergic to proteins in the cat's saliva, urine, and dander (dried flakes of skin).
Anyone who suffer from this allergies have oversensitive immune systems, their bodies mistake harmless things -- like cat dander -- for dangerous invaders, and attack them as they would bacteria or viruses. The symptoms of the allergy are the side effects of your body's assault on the allergen, or trigger.
So if you know that you or another family member is allergic to cats and if you're thinking on getting one,perhaps is not a good idea. (But, in case you do, here's what you need to know)

- Coughing and wheezing
- Hives or a rash on the chest and face
- Red, itchy eyes,
- Redness of the skin where a cat has scratched, bitten or licked you
- Sneezing

- Allergy Medications
- Allergy Shots
