Probably not: Unless the baby has had enough prior exposure to have already become allergic to dogs i doubt that the visit caused him to become allergic. I think it is much more likely that the child is infected with a viral cold caught from your guests and it has triggered his asthma symptoms. I would check with whomever is his treating physician and make sure he is getting the correct medication.

Good history: Cough which has been present for two months needs a thorough evaluation starting with a good history taken by someone with experience in treating cough. Unless the answer is obvious a chest xray is probably warranted. The cough could be infectious, a form of asthma or related to reflux. I'm not sure that the significance of the chest pain is without further information.

Viral infection: The symptoms you describe are most likely caused by a viral infection. The "flu" is also a viral illness but the symptoms are usually more severe, including fever, cough, headache, muscle aches and chills. I doubt that you are having an allergy reaction. I would treat your symptoms symptomatically with Ibuprofen or acetaminophen, fluids and rest. You should feel better in a few days.

Thank you, your answer was very helpful! In the UK only people who are deemed at risk are encouraged to get flu shots. But I'll ask my GP
