Combating Dust Mite Allergies

Year round symptoms due to dust mites are experienced by millions of people.  Dust mite allergens can be found throughout your house but most often live in warm, humid environments.  These allergens can trigger a variety of symptoms including nasal, ocular, pulmonary, and skin inflammation. If dust mite or other indoor allergies are suspected, patients should consult a board certified allergist for further evaluation. Testing for dust mite allergies typically includes either a skin prick test or blood test (ImmunoCAP IgE).

Treatment for dust mite allergies includes reducing exposure to the allergen, pharmacotherapy, and immunotherapy.  Allergy Partners has teamed with Allergy Guardian, to provide dust mite fabric covers for pillows, mattresses, and box springs.  Allergy immunotherapy is the most effective long term treatment for dust mite allergies available.  Effective treatment with allergen specific immunotherapy has been shown to decrease the progression of respiratory allergic diseases and even prevent the development of asthma in children.
