Do female cats cause less allergies?
Female cats produce a lower level of allergens than males, and neutered males produce a lower level of allergens than unneutered males. In 2000, researchers at the Long Island College Hospital found that cat owners with dark-colored cats were more likely to report allergy symptoms than those with light-colored cats.
Is there a shot to get rid of cat allergies?
What is it? A new cat allergy vaccine that's administered to pets themselves, not people. Earlier this year, HypoPet AG announced in a press release that it was developing a vaccine that targets Fel d 1, a common feline allergen that affects close to 10 percent of the Western human population.
Is Allegra good for cat allergies?
If your allergies only appear sporadically – say when pollen count is high or you have that random encounter with your friend's cat – fast-acting antihistamines will be your best bet. These include medications like Benadryl (diphenhydramine), Claritin (loratidine), Allegra (fexofenadine), and Zyrtec (cetirizine).
Does Allegra work as well as Benadryl?
Benadryl is also used to treat insomnia, motion sickness, and mild cases of Parkinsonism. A main difference between Benadryl and Allegra is that Allegra tends to cause less drowsiness and sedation than Benadryl. Benadryl and Allegra are available in generic form and over-the-counter (OTC).
Does Allegra help with itchy skin?
Oral antihistamines may relieve the itching. Nondrowsy oral antihistamines include fexofenadine (Allegra) and loratadine (Claritin).
