For a while, I thought I might be allergic to my dog's saliva because I know that's relatively common, until I realized that I don't get hives when he licks me- only when he bites me. It does not happen when my kitten bites or scratches me, and it does not happen when my dog scratches me. Only when he bites me... if I could provide a picture on here, I would, but I am not sure how to do that or if I am even able to. They swell up and itch but don't really bother me much besides that. They stay for about an hour and then go away. It happens EVERY time. Just wondering if I could be allergic to something, but what could it be since it isn't saliva? Can't wait to hear your answers.. thanks so much in advance.
