Hi, This is driving me nuts. I think I finally realized I am very allergic to Cat dander. I have had a week long case of really red, ichy, burning red eyelids on and off since october. I recentley moved to the country and spend social evening at friends that have cats. I usually stay over and wake up with swollen eyes that progressivley get worse..they get red then scab, then get red again then get better. I am 99.9 sure it is the cats ( I have always been allergic to cats but usually just get stuffy, with ichy eyes ) Is there anything I can take to help with this. I am getting to the point when I am scared of even sharing a cab with my girlfriends because they may have the dander on their coats.. I have elliminated everything else and am sure it is the cats. Yours Sincerely Carol Hartley.
