My DP and DS visited a friend today (who we have visited before). DP said on the way home, DS's eyes started watering then began to swell up and hives developed on his cheeks.

We've given him clarentyne and some ventolin (just in case) and the hives have gone but his eyes are so watery and swollen.
Does this warrant a DR's visit or just stay at home & monitor?? His breathing seems fine.
Then we need to work out what caused it? He's been there before - they have a cat but wouldn't he have reacted before?? Or I thought pollen?
What's the best way to work out the trigger?

Ive lived with cats my whole life and only had an allergic reaction to them for the first time 4 years ago so it is very possible

That's interesting! We've got dogs and he's fine but I know cats set off my allergies. Do you still have cats now that you react to them?

Yeh i do, i actually run a cat rescue so have a few. Ive worked out their stress pheromones are what sets me off most of the time so know to maintain their stress levels. For some it could be their coat, urine or saliva as well.

If i were to work in say a pound or shelter though id have no hope. Id get sinusitis so bad i couldnt breathe or see from swelling and blocked nasal passages.
And itchy face and eyes too.
Itd take about 24 hours for my reaction to calm down. But id look alot like your son when it happened.
