I have 3 boys and I love them to pieces. They're so much fun!
However, I came down with a bad case of walking Pneumonia from bacteria in my lungs and spent Christmas in the ER on a nebulizer.

I got over it minus some minor coughing that slowly started to wane. I didn't spend much time with my piggles during the medication phase. My husband did all of the cleaning and most of the feeding.

Yesterday, I did a top to bottom scrub of their room and cage and I started coughing bad again. Has anyone had any experience with this?? I don't want to be constantly sick from them.

It could be a number of factors I'm assuming: Hay, dander, poop.

Their cage is cleaned twice a week and washed once a week. I also clean all the poop out with a dust buster everyday. I don't want to find them new homes. They're my little boogers and part of the family.

I just need some answers or solutions to help me figure this out.
