My cat is sneezing a lot after two courses of antibiotics and I'm unsure how to proceed, given that I don't entirely trust the veterinary practice I use in terms of pushing for expensive tests and treatments. Could the cat just have allergies? Do I just need to suck it up and go to this vet again? [more inside]
Ok, joking aside, why am I always sneezing and sniffling while at work, and nowhere else? Am I allergic to something here? And if so, what can I do about it? [more inside]
I don´t know if it´s how my nerves are arranged, or if I have an air passage too tight, but whenever I get hit on the nose, even if it isn´t too hard, I start sneezing uncontrollably a few seconds later. Now, I want to get my nose pierced (nostril, not septum), and I´m a bit afraid of that. [more inside]
I had hand surgery this morning under general anesthesia. About 12 hours after the surgery, I seem to have developed an allergy attack (I do not normally have allergies, but perhaps one or two attacks a year). My nasal passages are swollen and I am sneezing. Is this normal? Might it be a result of the anesthesia? I have a follow-up tomorrow, but should I be concerned this evening?

What practical, non-medical tips do you have for pet allergy sufferers who will have to stay in a home with a pet for multiple days? Next month I'll be faced with this. Reading previous questions, I saw a good suggestion - bring your own Pillow Case. What other things do you do when you know you have to live with someone with a pet for a few days? Any nonmedical suggestions for me, the visitor, are welcome, and I'd love to hear any kooky things you have done in the past that somehow worked for you.
My cat is sneezing in relatively violent, rapid-fire outbursts of 5 - 10 seconds. The nose and eyes are not discharging anything. She'll just sit up from where she's taking a nap, sneeze a whole bunch of times in a row really fast, then lay down again. This cat has an auto-immune disorder and has taken prednisone for the last year or so. I took her to the vet a week ago for a checkup and I told the vet about the sneezing, which at the time wasn't that bad. The vet said if it got worse, I should bring my cat back in and she'd give her a round of antibiotics to see if that knocked it out, though there was nothing to indicate it was a virus. I wasn't impressed with that answer. In the last couple of days, the sneezing has become slightly more frequent. Any idea what I should do or what this might be? If the advice is go to the vet, would you recommend another vet?
