im sorry to hear that. as long as its nothing you can remove from your house (cleaners, cotton, fleece etc) that really is a huge issue to deal with. most of my knowledge ends at food related allergies .. but i would at least recommended seeking out a "holistic vet" in the area and getting...

antibiotics aim to kill all bacteria ..
