Dust Mite Allergy Solutions

The best medical advice you receive should be from a medical professional. Severe allergies can be life-threatening and you shouldn’t rely on a website like mine to make personal health decisions.

But isn’t it refreshing to hear from someone who has gone through a similar experience?  I am not a doctor, however, I do have one advantage over many of the doctors I’ve spoken to…personal experience.

I’ve spent years with allergies and I’ve read through medical journals to find information on allergies.  I believe the things I’ve learned might help you.

In the past, I was told by a doctor I didn’t have allergies.  Later, I found out I did have allergies and went through allergy immunotherapy unsuccessfully.

Eventually, I found a new allergist who tested me for many more allergens. I learned that my prior treatment didn’t work because there were 80 additional allergens I was reacting to.

For the past 5 years I’ve been working with an allergist I trust and I’m finally feeling better.

Recently Diagnosed With Dust Mite Allergy?

If you or a child has recently been diagnosed with dust mite allergy, don’t worry, you’re not alone. According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology:

  • Allergies affect more than 24 million Americans and more than 6 million are children

  • Allergies are the 6th leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S.

  • The disease costs us more than $18 billion annually

  • Allergies are on the rise

For outdoor allergy symptoms, most people turn to some form of antihistamine or corticosteroid to reduce inflammation.  However, if you’re allergic to indoor allergens like dust mites, pets, and mold, you’ll have a little more control over your environment.

There are a number of natural steps you can take to limit your exposure, including:

  • Improve your home’s air quality

  • Reduce carpeting

  • Practice good bed hygiene

  • Keep an eye out for signs of mold

  • Manage pet presence and pet dander indoors

If you’re new to dust mite allergy, check out my article on the must-have items for indoor allergies.  You might want to learn about dust mites and skin rash, how to get rid of dust in the house, and my experience with allergy shots.

You can also read through my recommendations page for the best allergy brands.  I’ve used many of these products and know which ones to trust and which to avoid.

Dust Mite Solutions works hard to publish relevant information on indoor allergies and looks to medical professionals for sources. I’m always looking to improve the site and hear from professionals who can contribute.

After being diagnosed with allergies, your patients will likely be searching the Internet for support.  If they’re like me, they will search for information from doctors and from other people with allergy.

If you work with allergy sufferers, please consider linking to my Free Allergy Journal pdf on your website (it’s free).  I’m confident it will help your patients better understand their allergy symptoms.  It might help you diagnose and treat them as well.My Allergy Journal - Dust Mite Solutions

Your Source For Indoor Allergy Information

If you’re suffering from allergies, I’m sure you’ve scoured the Internet for support.  You’ve searched for things like “How do I manage my allergies?”, “Why are allergies making me tired?”, and “Do allergy shots really work?”

I bet you’ve found helpful advice from medical websites, but it’s hard to get support from reading general medical information.

So you kept looking, bouncing from one website to the other, as you tried to find something or someone you could relate to.  I remember looking for information and becoming fed up.  I felt like I was the only one who felt the way I did.

As a result of my early struggles with dust mite allergy, I decided to create this website so I could share information. The website would also allow me to consolidate the allergy information I found and my personal experiences into 1 helpful site.

I hope this website helps you on your allergy journey.
