How Does Pet Dander Cause Allergies?

Pet dander is essentially the skin that sheds from your dog, cat, or other pet. The dander contains proteins which can cause an allergic reaction in some people. Pet dander can also aggravate asthma symptoms.

Your pet is constantly shedding their skin, as we all are, and when those skin particles get into the air, if you are allergic, they can cause symptoms that are similar to those of seasonal allergies. Pet dander accumulates in the carpet, on the furniture, and in your pet’s fur, and can make it difficult for some people to breathe easy in the same home as their pet.

What Are the Symptoms Associated With a Pet Dander Allergy?

The symptoms caused by a pet dander allergy are extremely similar to those associated with seasonal allergies. Some people may experience a runny nose, congestion, and itchy, watery eyes while others may be plagued by a cough, swollen skin under their eyes, and congestion pain. For people who have asthma, these symptoms may be more severe and include difficulty breathing and tightness in the chest. People who suffer from a pet dander allergy may experience a combination of any of the symptoms listed below.

Symptoms of a pet dander allergy:

  • Sneezing
  • Runny nose
  • Itchy eyes
  • Watery eyes
  • Red eyes
  • Nasal congestion
  • Postnasal drip
  • Cough
  • Congestion pain
  • Swollen skin under the eyes
  • Itchy nose
  • Itchy throat
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Allergic dermatitis

How Do I Know If I’m Suffering From a Pet Dander Allergy?

If you are experiencing some of the symptoms mentioned above, it can be difficult to determine whether you are suffering from seasonal allergies, an allergy to pet dander, or another allergy or medical condition altogether. The best way to understand what is causing your symptoms is to ask your healthcare provider.

Once your healthcare provider has determined that you are not suffering from a health condition that could endanger you and that you are indeed experiencing allergies, you’ll have to ascertain what type of allergies you are suffering from. An allergist can help with this. Those who suffer from pet dander often experience their symptoms while they are indoors with their pet or in an area where pet dander is in abundance. Being outdoors and breathing fresh air may help to alleviate symptoms, which is the opposite of what occurs with seasonal allergies to weeds, trees, or grasses.

What Can I Do to Alleviate My Symptoms?

If you are allergic to pet dander and have a pet, there are several steps you can take so that you and your pet can once again live in harmony. Frequently vacuuming and cleaning your furniture and pet furniture is important as pet dander tends to accumulate in those places. Also, giving your pet baths more often, or having someone else in your household who does not have a pet dander allergy give your pet a bath can help to reduce the amount of pet dander being released into the air.
