Neck tightness, difficulty breathing, itchy face and neck. Allergy to cat hair or food?

would tightness in the neck and difficulty breathing with itchy face and neck be more likey to be an allergy to cat hair or food? I am nursing a kitten back to health but I am allergic and have an itchy nose because of him. he never comes inside- I keep him outside and change my clothes and wash my hands every time I touch him.I recently ate a lot of cheese even though I know I shouldn t since I have an intolerance but it never did this to me before. Could it be just having too much recently?

In view of the history of allergy given by you, most likely your symptoms are as a result of allergy to cat. Cheese is also known to cause allergy in people who have allergic diathesis. My suggestion is you should avoid handling the cat-let some other family member do it. If you cannot avoid it, take an antihistaminic, a monteleukast and inhalers like aerocort. Avoid cheese also as much as possible or at least till your symptoms subside.
