I'm 37 and have hayfever for close to 20 years. A week ago we got a puppy and almost immediately I had a strong reaction to it. I was hoping it was just a coincidence and it was just my regular hayfever. It got worse and I've ended up on steroids and been given an inhaler as my peak flow is about half what is expected. Antihistamine is doing ok with everything but my chest and breathing. Nurse cant be sure it's the puppy but suspects, as I do, that it is. I've now to be tested for asthma. My 6 year old daughter has asthma but so far she has been ok. Has anyone else been in a similar situation? Is it possible or practical to keep the dog? I've only just joined this page so apologies if this is a repeat.
