    Hello,
    We bought a family cat last month but since then, my little 9-year-old child cannot withstand being around the cat. She sneezes a lot and starts to have a running nose. We understand from our basic knowledge that it is an allergy but we do not know how to manage it. we do not want to lose the cat and also we do not want her to suffer. What can we do?

    Hello hsmall77,
    I am sorry your daughter is going through this. What she is experiencing is pet allergy due to the dander and fur from the cat. It is best she avoids being around cats. The only treatment would be to avoid the cause or use drugs which is not advised. You can get stuffed animals for her as a solution. It’s best to avoid the cause.
