I was never allergic to cats before l. I lived with one just couple months ago, for a few years. I just got my sphynx two days ago and amongst sneezing constantly my eyes are itchy watery and one gets so bad I cant open it in the morning my eyes are swollen as well.went to the eye doctor just in case it was pink eye. I was told just allergies. I cant live like this I dont know what to do. Spent so much money on my kitty and i do love him very much

You may have to take piriton for itching. Make sure to wash your hands every time and clean all the surfaces he jumps on.

@Isaly oh yikes that's no fun. Do you have meds against allergy? If not, go get them. I'm allergic for cats and...I live with 4 cats in my house:). Take my meds (pills, nosespray and eye drops) everyday and wash my hands a lot. Clean my eyes with waterin the morning and evening and use eyedrops
Your body will get used to your cat after a while. But that can take a few months.

That's too bad. My husband is allergic to my kitty. We have a few air purifiers around the house. Plus I damp mop the floor before he comes home every day. I wash down the areas my kitty likes to sit in - windowsills etc. It's a lot of work but I really don't want to get rid of my husband lol.
