New skin allergy to my dog, what do I do?? *picture* MissHolly 2 kids; West Sacramento, California 980 posts

I have developed a skin allergy to my dog that I've owned for over 5 years. I have had a dog my whole life and never had issues with this. All of the sudden (over the past 3 months) I have broke out in this horrible rash. I finally went to get tested and they said I was highly allergic to dogs. I don't know what to do at this point as I have done all the necessary steps to reduce allergens in my house (hired a house cleaner, got him groomed, moved his bed out of my room, used creams). It is getting worse every day and has taken over my whole body.



I don't know what I would do if I had to get rid of him and my kids adore him...what do I do??WP_20130613_006_zps8b6946f6.jpg.htmlWP_20130613_006_zps8b6946f6.jpg

I'd find him a new home. Your health trumps keeping him IMO.

I think if you have done everything that has been recommended you don't really have a choice.
