Mysophobia. Look it up.
Unfortunately people shed far more 'dander' than any pet would.
Indeed. Guess what a lot of the dust around your house is - human skin flakes. We're filthy things, secreting various oily liquids, shedding skin and hair everywhere, awash in a sea of bacteria. But we evolved to tolerate these things, for the most part.
