Brief Answer:
Kindly elaborate on the matter

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Health care magic.

From what I understand, she has had repeated exposures to the odor of cat urine. I do not however understand the correlation with fireplace and what you mean by spray. I seek your clarification.

The mentioned symptoms seem to be allergic symptoms and avoidance of the triggers should provide relief. However I insist for a total blood count to be done. Let know the reports and I shall guide you further.
