My son and I have a cat also a guinea pig. His Grandma don't complain of any animal smell on him . She can hug and wrestle with him without any throat issues,sniffling of the nose.
My son holds the pets more than me and for some reason to my son's Grandma (my mom) that there is more animal smell on me and she's always doing the allergy hacking sounds as in clearing throat,blowing her nose,saying this odor is too much for her that she can't stand to be around me.
I even ask other people if I stink including my son they all say No. My son will even tell me if I wear a bad smelling soap,or body spray etc.
He will even know when I said Hi to one of our neighbors because her apartment is full of smoke smell. He will go you smell like smoke.
I can even smell the smoke myself after I leave my neighbor apartment and we can both smell when our cat makes a very stinky poo.
So the question is why doesn't my son have more of the animal smell than I do after all he's the one that holds them more and it should be having more of an effect on his Grandma especially when she wrestles and gives him hugs especially when she gets so bugged by it as soon as I get into the car.
She goes I know it is you because your son been in the car and I didn't smell anything until you got in.
So can someone make an increase of allergy reaction just by knowing and assuming I'm the only one holding the pets a lot ?
Is she trying to make herself in so much pain since she dislikes us having pets especially two of them that she wants to make me feel bad in hopes that I will reduce her suffering by getting rid of our pets so there is no more animal smell on us ?
Which we will never get rid of our pets as they live with us and his Grandma doesn't.
I'm tired of hearing I stink every time I get into grandma's car that she has to say automatically I stink or wave her hand in front of her nose saying ugh.
So if I only stink around her and no one else ? Why is that and What can I do about that ?
