Did you know that little old microscopic dust mites could provoke allergies and even asthma in your children?
Dust mites are microscopic creatures, related to ticks and spiders, that live in house dust. The proteins in dust mite body parts and faeces cause allergic reactions in people who have become sensitised to dust mite proteins.
Dust mite allergens have also be known to trigger asthma attacks and are one of the most common causes of asthma attacks worldwide. This is primarily because dust mites are found nearly everywhere, especially indoors. Dust mite allergen can also be inhaled while it is airborne, though it tends to settle quickly.
All homes contain some amount of dust mites. Because dust mites feed on dead human skin, the allergen tends to be concentrated in mattresses, bedding, upholstered furniture, carpets – and even your baby’s stuffed animals. Additionally, our furry or feathered friends contribute dander to the dust and increase the food source for mites. (Make sure your pets receive regular baths.)
If your baby or young child has allergies to dust mites, the symptoms to look out for can include:
Typical allergy or hay fever symptoms, such as sneezing, runny nose or congestion, sore throat, sinus pain, itchy or watery, red eyes, headache.
Asthma symptoms, such as wheezing, coughing, difficulty breathing, tightness in the chest.
Eczema or skin rashes in infants and young children.
