    Of friends who have cat allergies, they either or include taking Claritan or Reactin and daily vacuuming with HEPA filters to reduce dander in the air and on furniture that you come into contact with.

    Yeah, it's important to damp dust (go over things with a damp cloth rather than a dry one) every couple of days, and keep up with vacuuming.

    Itching eyes the Zyrtec should take care of, but if it doesn't fix it completely, Visine makes an allergy formula that works pretty well.

    Opcon-A works pretty well for the eyes. These drugs only do so much though. What can happen if you are continually exposed to something that you're allergic to is that you get more and more allergic to it. There are desensitization shots but last time I checked, you had to take them 2 or 3 times a week. Who knows though - there is new stuff coming out all the time.

    I remember when we first got our dog i took benedryl for a month than all of sudden it cleared up. like i had to get use to a dog, i do have to take benedryl when he sheds alot, but it was really bad when first got him. now I have no problems. maybe you just have to get use to the cats? I don't know I'm probably not being helpful.
    In no likes experiment.

    that is all

    i dunno what else to say so

    Anything with alcohol in it (like those anti acne pads or listerine etc) will help with itchy eyes if it's really bad. You just swipe a bit of it under your eyes. Visine allergy eye drops are also helpful.
