An Asthmatic Patient Handling His Cat

Can an individual who has asthma take care of a cat?

Studies reveal that the cat’s saliva and its skin are accountable for allergies in susceptible individuals. The glycoprotein Fel d1, the culprit allergen is secreted by the mucous membrane via the cat’s saliva and skin. While sneezing and related hay-fever symptoms can be some hypersensitivity reactions, shortness of breath that can progress to asthma can be alarming.
