Description

Many people have birds as companions, and the most beloved is the canary. These birds are bright in color, small in size, and are known for their singing ability. Their feathers could cause their owners some troublesome allergies, though. Although, the feathers themselves aren’t the sole source of allergens. The dander from the feathers is what will cause more trouble. Allergens can be found within the birds’ fecal matter as well.  

Symptoms could include:

•  Hay fever

•  Coughing

•  Sneezing

•  Sore throat

•  Black circles under the eyes

•  Postnasal drip

In extreme cases, one could experience:

•  Reduced lung capacity

•  Weight loss

•  Breathing difficulties

 

To determine the appropriate follow-up, positive allergy test results should be discussed with your physician.
