Would you voluntarily medicate your child if..

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
It meant they could have a pet? One of my kids has pet allergies and we've been considering trying an allergy medication and exposing him to different animals for awhile to see if the meds help. Something like Zyrtec, Allegra, and so on.

If you would/do, can you advise me on what OTC or prescription meds help best with indoor allergies?

We're in the Hudson WI area. We did go to a chiropractor who did this cold laser treatment thing, twice a week for 2 months and it didn't work and he said he could make a serum using some pet hair but we didn't go back after two months of it not helping.

I'm not exactly sure how she made the pet allergy remedy! She did it at her home. I call it a potion because it really did have some of my moms cat hair in it lol...crazy, I know. Could you maybe look up hollistic allergist in your area? Now the one we go to is a bit extreme, she is a true purist...but she is amazing!!! Where are you located? I am really good at speaking out holistic medical care! When we were on vacation (before my son was allergy free) he had a horrible reaction, we went to a cranial specialist and he "massaged" the reaction away. Kind of like voodoo lol, but it worked :) let me know if you'd like help :)

Hmm..tell me more about this. We did try the laser allergy treatments ($700) and they didn't work.

Absolutely not! You know you can detox the allergy...true story! My son was allergic to cats, his allergist MADE a detox "potion" for him. She is a hollistic allergist & FIXED his allergy rather than just pitting a "bandaid" over it & pretending it was gone! She also detoxed his seasonal allergies as well. His season allergies were cured by a special diet for ONE YEAR! Now he is completely allergy free!!!

I am allergic. There is no such thing as a hypoallergenic pet. Unless you mean like a reptile.


Op: from personal experience, the meds may work for a little bit but he will become immune to them and they will quit working. I exhausted Zyrtec, Benedryl, AND Allegra within several months. I would check wiyh an allergist. I believe there are shots for it but I can't afford the cost so I gave up. Good luck momma.

I have a besenji lab mix. She is great with my kids and im not allergic to her. She is nit hard to train but id recommend a back yard

Yeah, I looked at that breed and it said they're very stubborn and aren't good unless you're a very experienced dog owner.




Quoting NeverTooMany:

Bisinji's are hypoallergenic ( might have spelled that wrong)

True, there is no truly hypoallergenic breed in existence. That's why I'm afraid even if we did get one of those breeds, that it won't necessarily help.

You know what if your child wants a pet then go for it to hell with what other stuck up "women" fond "acceptable".
