Bird allergy including, chicken, goose, duck, canary, parakeet, parrot, turkey and sparrow.
MAYBE you love your birds! But do you also experience a fever, chills, cough and shortness of breath? Do you have a productive cough, chronic fatigue and weight loss? Then you may have an allergy to your bird!
Do you know that some people will have an Asthma
attack, or a runny nose
and watery eyes
from airborne particles from bird feathers and dried bird droppings? It is the bird protein that is a trigger to the allergy. Once symptoms to birds have emerged they tend to persist.
This practical information is made available by the Allergy Centre. An Allergist can tell you if you may have Bird Allergy, what it is, why you have it, how you can be tested for it, what you can do about it, the best treatment, whether you should be desensitised or vaccinated, the best medication to use, the best place to seek treatment and whether you can get a cure for Bird Allergy.
