Avoidance: It depends on what symptoms are caused by dust mite allergy and exposure. Most common would be nasal syptoms (allergic rhinitis) and oral antihistamines or topical steroids or antihistamines are very effective. Dust mite exposure in allergic people also can contribute to allergic eczema (atopic dermatitis) and asthma. They are treated in the usual way. But best is to avoid dust mite exposure.
