I have been having cough n cold for almost a month, it keeps on coming n going after taking proper medicines. However, my doctor asked me to check for IGE. My IGE report showed 1156 IU/ml. Before mentioning my symptoms to my doctor, I had told that I have a dog and he loves to sleep with me on my bed. Upon showing my report to doctor, she had quickly told me that my health issue is because of my dogs fur. Please advise, I do not want to get rid of my dog. Please note that I have been having my dog for a year now, got him since he was approx 45-50 days old and these symptoms have been seen since last month or so.
