Pets like cats possibly cause allergy attacks so once a person starts sneezing and itching when cats are near, this is indicative of cat allergy. Pollen can also trigger sneezing and other airborne stimuli.

There are some people who suddenly get itchy and develop rashes once they have consumed seafood, milk, soy, wheat, eggs, peanut and other types of food.
