California's burning

Who knew that the wildfires in California can wreak havoc all the way to Colorado? Lately it has been smoggy and the skies have been opaque in Colorado. All the extra smog, ash, whatever in the air is making Cooper's allergies near unbearable for the little guy. No matter what I do, he still tries to scratch himself in vain.
His right eye is almost swollen shut, his muzzle is red and raw, and his poor wee paws are swollen and red. Poor Choo Choo :( Nothing I can do offers any kind of relief. Even when he sleeps, he wakes up frustrated scratching himself and making terrible moaning noises. Even I am suffering from all the extra pollutants in the air; my eyes are just really dry and itchy and I don't even want to know how bad it must be for Cooper.
All in all, as I'm expecting another wildfire in California next year, I just hope that the entire fucking state burns down so we don't have to deal with it next year.

Just a thought but have you tried Benadryl. I know it helps my shiba out with allergies. make sure to call your vet first to get the correct dosage for his size/weight.
