Fur Allergy

If you have fur allergy, you respond to allergenic substances that get stuck in the mucous membranes of the eyes, nose or lungs. The substances usually come from the animal’s saliva, urine or sebaceous glands but also fur. Most people who become allergic to fur animals get their first problems in childhood and adolescence.
The allergic disorders often decrease with age. It is not entirely clear why fur allergy starts, but it can be partly hereditary. The environment can also be important.
