Default itchy kisses

ok so I have had dogs all my life and I'm not allergic to them but when Rigby licks me or his saliva touches my skin it starts to sting and itch and its the same with my boyfriend's dad's boxer but when any other dog licks me like my mom's dogs I'm fine. any advice? I miss getting slobbery smoosh face kisses

People can be allergic to a protein in a dogs saliva, but why you only have a problem with boxer saliva is weird. I don't have any other ideas.

Maybe you are allergic to all dogs saliva?
Boxers give more kisses than most others, so maybe you were never really bothered by it before?

Just rinse off after kisses.

My husband has always said the same thing but he's a bit of a whiner so I just always ignored him but maybe he's telling the truth he also says "brindle fur tears me up more than fawn fur" -eye roll..

courtneyd'anne its funny you say that because my husband thinks I'm crazy too!

When Jaxon touches me I itch, anywhere he touches me...arm, leg, face, foot...doesn't matter I itch and get really red. (it also doesn't matter what part of him touches me....if its his leg, arm, head, back) That has happen to me since he was a pup. I have been known to have kinda sinsetive skin so I just chalked it up to be me. But when we got Belah, she can rub ALLLLLL over me and it doesn't bother me.

I don't know why, but it doesn't make me itch or red when she touches me. I think it may just be because Jaxon has shorter and courser hair than Belah. She has short hair but its soooo soft.

I used to be like that with my sisters pitbull. I think dogs must have different saliva. I eventually got used to it :-)
