4. Dog and Cat Allergies

Pet allergies are common, even among pet owners. You can develop sensitivity to pet dander, for example, even if you have had a pet for years without symptoms.  

The opposite may also happen: You may find you develop immunity to your pet’s dander, but that an allergic reaction is triggered by coming into contact with animals that are not your own. 

If you have pet allergies, don't ignore them. Constantly inflamed nasal passages can become vulnerable to bacterial infections. So it’s best to treat your allergies as soon as possible with an antihistamine, corticosteroids or immunotherapy.
