How do I overcome cat/pollen allergies?
I went to my cousin's birthday party about a week ago, and as you know it's allergy season. Unfortunately, she also has a cat, which was double trouble for me. I'm asking how I could more easily avoid or decrease the effects of my cat/pollen allergies.

An allergic reaction is an immune response to an allergen. You can't "overcome" these reactions. However, you can prevent attacks and alleviate immune responses. To prevent attacks, avoid areas that have your allergens. Try not to pet or pick up the cat when you visit your cousin's home. You could tell your cousins about your allergy, and ask them to vacuum the house before you arrive. Also, because cat hair is fairly clingy, it's a good idea to wash your hands if you accidentally touch some cat hair, especially before touching your face or eyes. You might also want to wash your clothes when you get home. Over-the-counter allergy medication can help prevent and treat your symptoms if they are mild. If they are chronic or severe, you might want to speak to your allergist about getting medications or shots to help prevent allergy attacks.
