Indoor Allergens (cont.)
In almost everyone who has an allergic reaction to house dust, symptoms will improve with treatment.
If the allergy is to animal dander, removal of the animal will result in gradual disappearance of symptoms.
- You may notice significant improvement in 2-3 weeks, but it may take 6 months or longer for your symptoms to resolve.
- The vast majority of people with animal dander allergy are able to avoid uncomfortable allergic symptoms simply by avoiding the animal sources of their allergens.
- Unfortunately, this sometimes means avoiding the homes of friends with pets and public places where animals go.
- With so many dogs, cats, and other pets in our world, you are bound to be exposed to dander occasionally.
