What causes breathing difficulty?

I am having breathing problems. No phlem. A rat moved into our house over a week ago and we have been unable to catch it. I am allergic to rats. after I cleaned up around were we have seen the rat I began experienceing breathing problems. I can breath a full breath but it is getting increasingly harder to breath and have to cough sometimes.

I think even if the rat is gone, its allergens remain in the house for months. You have to clean house and refresh it. You will not get relief if allergens are there. Take any antihistamines like ketotifen to get better.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
