Is there any way that I can get rid of my guinea pig allergies without giving it away?

In brief: Possibly

If it is truly the guinea pig that you are allergic to, you can consider doing allergy injections to decrease your symptoms.
I usually don't do this in my practice, since it would be much simpler to consider another pet. Remember that you may also have symptoms with the wood shavings in the cage or other allergens. Talk with an allergist to find out more.
