As I am the Diet Expert, I think your should also ask CyberDoc this question. I would, however, surmise, that a child with CF who already produces a great quantity of secretions from the respiratory system could become even more sensitised if it is exposed to pet hairs. However, in the field of food allergy which I know more about than allergies triggered by pet hairs, the modern approach is to expose infants and children to food allergens so that they develop antibodies while they are still young. I have also read in a scientific publication that children with asthma in Australia who had been kept away from allergens (no pets, no playing outside, etc), had a worse prognosis that children with asthma who were allowed to come into contact with pets, and the outside world. I hope you will find an answer to this problem.
