Improve your comfort and prevent the onset of allergic symptoms with AIR ET SANTÉ air purifiers

French people are very fond of their pets. In 2020, there were 14 million cats and 7 million dogs in France, spread over many households. Since the beginning of the Covid-19 crisis, many individuals, who spend more time indoors, have decided to adopt a ball of fur.

Unfortunately, these animals that we cherish so much, are the cause of some of our allergic reactions! In fact, respiratory ailments, due to allergies, and asthma are caused largely by animals, especially cats, which are responsible for ⅔ of animal allergies.

Other symptoms, similar to allergic rhinitis and typical of cat allergy, may appear :

  • Cold,
  • Sneezing,
  • Coughing,
  • Conjunctivitis, watery and itchy eyes,
  • Severe asthma.

The most common term for cat allergy is cat hair allergy, because it is the cat's hairs that carry the allergen responsible for the allergy.  It is obviously advisable to consult an allergist or a health professional who will prescribe treatments for cat allergy.

The most offensive feline allergens, named Fel D1 and Fel D4, are proteins found in the sebaceous glands (skin) and saliva of cats. Cats also carry many pollens and mites in their fur. When a cat grooms itself, it spreads the allergens all over its coat. The very volatile hairs are then easily dispersed throughout the house, causing people with cat hair allergies to suffer from severe symptoms such as conjunctivitis, allergic rhinitis and asthma.

Allergens stick to indoor pollutants such as dust, fur, human hair and clothing.

Despite their harmfulness, nearly 80% of people with allergies to animals choose to keep or adopt a pet. From then on, they look for solutions to improve their daily life and live in harmony with their pet.

In 2019, researchers at the University of Zurich created a vaccine to be administered to cats to neutralize the allergen found in their saliva. It was intended to reduce allergies in humans. Although this vaccine is seen as promising, it only blocks one of the 8 allergens produced by the cat: Fel D1.
