I have seen an allergist and have been tested and am allergic to grass, dustmites and ragweed. But I'm trying to figure out my latest reaction. My face is slightly red right now, and it itches like crazy half the time. It started after my cat rubbed her head against my lower face, and now my entire face is reacting, day three is today and it still isn't relieving. I've washed my face a few times already, moisturizers burn it now, I even quit using my one facial wash because it can dry the face and my face is severely dry now. I've also had to allergic reactions with my eye. It gets almost like pink eye, only it doesn't get all matted. I used my Patanol drop both times on the affected eye and the problems stopped. The itchy, red, water, swollen symptoms I was having. I'm trying to figure out if this is a reaction to my cat or what's going on. I don't know if I'm ready to put her outdoors (I'm so attached to her), but I need to at least figure this out. I do see my allergist today later, so I'll ask him for sure...but just wondering personal experience from others who have a cat allergy, or a facial reaction like this to something and what might have caused it. Maybe someone will see this and answer before I get to my allergist so I have some ideas going in. Thank you so much for any help you can offer!
