How to treat a cat allergy

Cat dander allergies are quite common and can be managed in several ways. Limiting your contact and keeping your home clean can help if you own a cat, along with taking over-the-counter allergy medications like antihistamines. To treat cat allergy symptoms for good, immunotherapy is a safe and effective option.

How do you get rid of a cat allergy? I'm Dr. Manan Shah, I'm an ENT and allergist with Wyndly Health. The only clinically proven method to decrease your allergy symptoms from cats is through a treatment protocol called immunotherapy. The way this works is our doctors prescribe you a medication called allergy drops, which you take under the tongue, daily.

Over time, this exposes your body to the Fel d 1 protein and, over time, your body becomes tolerant. In my physical practice, I've treated a ton of patients using this treatment protocol and many can now actually have cats. And clinical studies also show that allergy drops are effective at decreasing cat allergy symptoms.

On a personal note, I actually had a cat allergy and I treated myself and I did everything right. And I've noted a really substantial benefit in my symptoms around cats. If you have any questions, please let me know.
