Thanks, I am currently waiting for blood test results for allergies, because I thought it might be asked exactly what I was allergic to. I get mild hayfever, just sneezing. I am sure that cat/dog hair is the only trigger. I have never had time off work for either. I was prescribed an inhaler to help with the wheezing, but, as I said, never had to use it other than when near cats or dogs, especially not due to stress or exercise. I find that normal antihistamines are mostly sufficient to deal the allergy. Cheers.
