Skunk odor allergy

Is it possible to be allergic to skunk odor?  My dog was sprayed by a skunk about 2 months ago, and I haven't felt well for about 2 months.  
My symptoms include:
•A runny nose; discharge is generally thin and clear
•Sneezing many times multiples
•Swollen eyelids, dark circles under my eyes
•slight cough
•Feelings of fullness in my ears (and liquid) and head in general
•Fatigue
•heaviness in my chest, feeling like it's hard to breathe deeply
•Hard to concentrate or think clearly
My PCP diagnosed "allergies" this Monday - and it just occurred to me today that it might be allergies to the skunk.  Although we've done everything to remove the odor from my dog, I can still smell it on her.  If this is possible, what can I do about it?  My PCP just put me on Singulair - I've taken it for two days with no relief of symptoms.
