Dust Allergies

Dust Allergies

Millions of people suffer annually from dust allergies caused by indoor allergens. These culprits include dust mite droppings, dander, and cockroach droppings.

The immune system controls how your body defends itself versus Dust Allergies. For instance, if you are allergic to dust mites, your immune system identifies dust mites as an danger or allergen. Your immune system overreacts by producing allergic antibodies called Immunoglobulin E (IgE). This reaction usually triggers symptoms such as sneezing, stuffiness, a runny nose, or itchiness in your nose, the roof of your mouth, throat, eyes or ears.

What is the treatment?

Prescription antihistamines, allergy shots, and a saline nasal rinse may be part of your treatment plan.

Can it be prevented?

An allergist can help you figure out the environmental root of your allergy by having you track your symptoms and daily activities.
