Pet for a child who is allergic to everything

My little boy has horrible allergies. He has been on meds since he was 12 months old and has been tested twice. He is allergic to Dogs, Cats, Hamsters, Horses, Guinea Pigs and etc. We want to get him a pet that is easy to care for but there are not a lot of choices left. He has fish and frogs.
Any suggestions?

  • I was going to say fish. Maybe a lizard or gecko?

  • What about a lizard? An Iguana or Bearded Dragon.

  • I don't think I could live in the house with a Lizard or a snake and we have fish/frogs.

  • Tortoise or maybe a hedge hog (but he might have trouble with at well) Maybe a bird? I'm not sure if the feathers would cause allergy problems or not. Hairless cat (although they are kind of creepy I think!)

  • Anything without fur.

  • What about a bird? Great pets if you take the time to care for and train them. Or a turtle?

  • turtle are pretty easy to take care are snakes and lizards...snakes are kinda creepy though for a younger child, because the snake will eat mice whole, which can scare younger child...lizards are great, and there are several types of them to choose from

  • bearded dragons are cool but I would suggest them for older kids. How old is your son?
