Asthma Trigger Experience and complications
Mary-Jay Health & Education
My now twelve years old daughter went to a friend birthday party in a cats invaded house. She knew she was allergy to it but she thought if she doesn't touch it she will be okay. She played there for couple of hours but ended up with $7000.00 medical bill on something that almost claimed her life.
It is funny now that I feel like I can be an allergy doctor without medical certification due to my wrapped around knowledge of do & don't and extensive reading on this symptom. My daughter was out of school for ten days. We have since then being so careful in exposing to any cat even though she reacts to some severely and not to some at all.
My experience have kept us out of Emergency room for four years now. I am proud in playing my part to keep emergency room use under control.
