So my son has been around our two dogs since birth, he has always had dry sometmes rashy skin but i always fear him being allergic to the dogs. from what i read more allergies symptoms are the coughing sneezing and wheezing,he doesnt do that much. his skin seems really dry and itchy today, im hoping its just due too winter.what do you think? he has seen the dr in the past over his dry skin they never bring up pet allergies..

with pet allergies you get itchy watery eyes or breathing issues along with hives not just itchy skin I would go more with exzema over allergies if it is bad.
