allergies?

Post by edenmcreden1873 on Tue Dec 20 2016, 19:52

I have terrible allergic reactions to 90% of dogs yet me and my partner got a staffy as i adore dogs and always wanted one and since having floyd i have no reaction like i do with other breeds ie itchy puffy eyes, blocked and runny nose and lack of breath but have discovered a different one with him which is that i can pet and play with him using my hands but if i have a t shirt on or no top if he touches any skin bar my hands i get itchy and a sort of rash that disappears after a short time anyone know why this is?

I don't know why it is, but I have the exact same problem with my dog. It's usually just my arms. I come out in little, very itchy blisters, and my son is the same.
Other than that I don't have any other reaction to him at all!

my friend's daughter has the same problem! she often gets redness & itchiness on exposed areas when she has touched a dog - not always, but often.

if she knows that she is going to be in contact with a dog she uses an antihistamine cream on exposed areas & that generally seems to help.

as staffies coats are quite coarse sometimes try coconut oil in your dogs coat eventually  it will make your dogs coat softer may lesson the reaction . fish in their diet is good too such as tuna, mackarel, salmon, pilchards. and an egg twice a week Smile

I used to get an awful rash when we first took Pepper on. It would blister and itch like mad.
When she came to me she hadn't been on a very good diet (Wagg) and her coat condition was a little coarse and prickly.

I found changing her diet (I opted to feed raw) helped and after a couple of months her coat went a lot softer and I know longer had to ensure I was covered from head to toe in clothing before touching her.

Adding fish into the diet will help - sardines, sprats etc.
