Is there a shampoo or lotion I can use when I pet my dogs.?
I got my boys in May of last year. We noticed that when we pet them or play with them me and my whole family break out in hives and it itches so bad. We don't play with them that much any more cause it s bad. I have to wear pants and long sleeved shirts. I almost want to wear gloves. I want to know if there is a shampoo or spray we can get. My poor kids love to get kisses from them, them pow faces are itchy and full of bumps. I don't want to re home them. They are my babies and I'm willing to do anything. I want to play with them I want them to cuddle with me and I can't. Please any suggestions.

The issue is an ALLERGY.
No, there isnt anything you can use on a dog to neutralize the allergens. Youll have to treat the humans who have a reaction to the dogs with allergy meds.
Brush your dogs more often to remove the dander and allergens from the coat. Train the dogs to not lick. Vaccuume often to remove the dander from your home. Dont let the dogs on furniture if at all possible. Use sheets or furniture covers that can be washed in case the dogs do get on the furniture.
Dont let the dogs in bedrooms (you spend 8+ hours there a nite.. You want bedrooms as clean and allergy free as possible)

Obviously your family is highly allergic to these dogs. Its common sense by this time that you need to rehome these dogs. You cannot interact with them as you are allergic. As much as you don't want to admit this, the best thing to do is find them a new home and then clean EVERYTHING these dogs have been on.
Its a matter of health for your family. Nothing you can do to prevent this other then remove the dogs. Sorry.
