Need your insight on this one....

Since yesterday, aidan has had watery, puffy and red eyes, bad runny nose (clear, thin), some coughing, stuffy nose. And I think eyes may be itchy or iritating too because i catch him rubbing it sometimes. Something tells me that this isn't one of his normal colds, because he normally gets a fever before a cold. This time nothing.

I think it could be more of an allergic reaction to my sister's dog. My sister had moved in with us for about 2mths now. She also brought her dog, which has not been cleaned and groomed for a long time now. And she smells! For past few weeks, aidan did start the runny nose. But now, it's like a full-blown allergy.

I just don't know if this is a cold or an allergic reaction to the dog. He was not exposed to anything else NEW, except for the dog. Yes, we have gone to my sister's house here and there for visits and nothing happened. But I'm just thinking because aidan is now exposed to the dog 24/7, it could have made his symptoms worse??

Poor baby is suffering I am going to call the doctor tomorrow to see if he can be seen and do an allergy test! I think it's about time to know if he is allergic to anything.

So what do you ladies think? a cold or an allergic reaction to the dog? i know..it's hard to say And....he's never looked like this with any of his colds before. His eyes look so bad, especially at the bottom eyelid area..it's so red and purplish in color.

I would say that it's an allergy to the dog. Especially if his eyes are red. I would highly suggest the allergy testing if you even remotely think he's allergic to anything.
