    Cat Allergy? - Itchy red Lips
    Adrian Adrian
    July 26, 2010

    Hey,

     

    When my girlfriend visits she seems to get a reaction to the cat. Her lips get itchy, red and almost look a little swollen too.

     

    She also suffers from Eczema on her hands but it seems to be her lips that cause the biggest problem. Sometimes she eats certain foods and thinks that this causes the lip itch as well.

     

    Does anyone have knowledge about these types of symptoms or have a remedy that may help? Maybe a cream? I know Hay Fever tablets do the trick, they are amazing in fact but she can't just keep popping tablets because we will be living together soon and the cat is coming along.

     

    Cheers!

    Adrian, this is a breast cancer support site, so we really don't know about allergies. However, I'd say she should visit a doctor to find out the best way she, you, her allergy, and the cat can co-exist! Smile PJH
