In the past, I have been around the cats of friends and family members and I have not noticed any symptoms that might be related to any kind of allergy. Recently I have been spending much more time around my girlfriend's cats. I have heard that it is possible to develop allergies even when you had no problems previously.
I haven't gone to the doctor for allergy tests as suggested in the article, but I have been experiencing sneezing, watering eyes and a runny nose. I have read that some natural products are good for cat allergies.
I have been adding cayenne pepper to some of my meals because I read that it could help get rid of some of the symptoms I am experiencing. I am also considering trying licorice root. It is also recommended to treat cat allergies.
