RABBIT ALLERGY


Key Allergens

There are 3 allergens associated with an allergy to rabbits, this includes their hair, dander (which is flakes of dry skin), urine and saliva.

All three allergens are lipocalin proteins, in other animal dander allergies this is the protein that most individuals react to. These proteins transport molecules like lipids and steroids around the body.


Associated Syndromes

Allergy to rabbit dander is strongly strongly associated with allergic rhinitis as well as asthma, rhinoconjunctivitis and atopic dermatitis.

Cross Reactivity

A rabbit allergy can be strongly linked to other animal allergies due to the lipocalin proteins. There is evidence of cross reactivity due to this protein with cockroaches, cows, dogs, guinea pigs, horses, cats, hamsters, mice and rats.
