    But you didn't use the wrong adjective.

    You used the correct adjective in your first post: your husband's symptoms are signs of an allergy. He may also be intolerant, but he most definitely is showing physical signs of an allergy.

    For anyone who hasn't suffered these symptoms, I can assure you, it's miserable. At least mine are.

    And I have a huge tolerance for pain. I had bunion surgeries on both feet and took zero painkillers. Zero. But get me around a cat, and it's misery.

    My husband's allergies originally sounded like your husband's, op. Now they are more like LHGirls.
    Please be cautious about his increased sneezing. Particularly because you have done a few things now to alleviate but he's sneezing more.

    Guys, he isnít suffering.. he would absolutely tell me if he was, believe me. Just being proactive if anyone has any tips. We are in a high traffic neighborhood so there is also a lot of dust, plus the grass was just cut...itís possible there is a number of factors that have him Sneezing since 5 months has been good. My guess based on all these responses is that Iím in the wrong forum for my question.

    Yes thank you for that link .
    Google is great, but real life chatting about what is worth/not worth it is better.

    He could be responding to other allergies as well. I have other environmental allergies as well . Pollen ,spores , and dust .

    My mom who was never allergic to cats developed a severe allergy though. She only visits me once a year for me to do her taxes . And even then she only spends an hour in my house and then we go out . She takes her two prescription antihistamine ,her inhalers and Benadryl .

    I know that doesnít help for a husband though . :(

    Does he want to keep your cat as much as you do?
