Dust Mites allergies are very common and most of time get ignored! People with Dust Mites allergies suffer the most inside their homes or in other people’s homes. Oddly enough, their symptoms often worsen during or immediately after vacuuming, sweeping or dusting. The process of cleaning can stir up dust particles making them easier to inhale.
Okay, So Where Are Dust Mites Found?
Dust Mites are everywhere! The particles are mostly found in pillows, mattresses, carpeting and upholstered furnitures. They float into the air when movement occurs and soon settles once movement has stopped. This could be as simple as walking on the carpet.
Studies have found that Dust mites are a common cause of Asthma in children.
