  Anonymous's Response per history u given its allergic related to pets, better to avoid contacts with pets.

Pet hair is not an allergen. People with pet allergies are allergic to proteins in pet saliva, urine or dander, dead skin that is shed.

Nonprescription (over-the-counter) remedies include
anti-itch creams containing camphor, menthol, pramoxine (Itch-X, Sarna Sensitive), or diphenhydramine (Benadryl);
antihistamines like diphenhydramine, chlorpheniramine (Chlor-Trimeton), or loratadine (Claritin, Claritin RediTabs, Alavert); and cetirizine (Zyrtec);
moisturizing lotions.
