HELP!! I just found out today that the reason my 8 month old stays with a sinus infection is basically due to our beloved dog "Pepper". I know that I am gonna have to get him out of the house, this will be the only way to stop those doctor visits every two weeks. But how do I get the left over Dander out of my house, and second do kids ever out grow this allergy? I want to find our dog a temporary home and would like to get him back. He has been with us for 8 years now, had him since he was a pup. And now my 13 and 5 year old are heart broken!! Any advise from anyone? I'll take any help I can get!! Thanks
My son was allergic to our 2 cats and bought special allergen shampoo to wash them with (every week). I also bought allergen carpet shampoo, mopped floors every day and washed his bed linens and curtains every week. It was worth it to keep our beloved pets. Was it an allergist who told you it was the dog or reg. doc. If not an allergist see one first.
I agree - see an allergist AND if you keep things washed and keep the baby away from the dog licking him/her then - things might improve. Also, a HEPA filter in the babies room should take any allergens out of the air,,,I use the round Honeywell HEPA every night in my room
