Avoidance and meds: The primary treatment for allergies is avoidance. Even though 100% of dust cannot be removed, many measures can help decrease the indoor house dust mite load. After that, medications including antihistamines and topical nasal steroids can be effective and safe. An allergist can assist in treatment and evaluation for other conditions.
