Dog allergy

Hi all

My wife has a weird allergic reaction to Alfie, it's only on her forearms and seemingly only from when she picks him up so that his chest/tummy is on her arm. Just wondering if anyone else has seem anything like that? I thought it might be something to do with his skin or possibly sweat, as his hair doesn't seem to cause anything?

Also was wondering if it might be hormonal, and when he gets the snip in a couple of months it might change?

Has he been washed? 2 years ago I developed a severe allergy to fragrances out of nowhere at the age of 34. It's possible that she's reacting to something in the shampoo that was used on him. I would wash him with a hypoallergenic shampoo and see if it continues.
