Allergies: The source of your allergies may be in your bedroom. You may be sensitive to the materials your sheets are made of, detergent you wash them in, your pillow, or even carpets and curtains. Use a hypoallergenic pillow, mild detergent, and wash or remove carpets and curtains. Avoid pets in the bedroom as you may be allergic to their dander. If no luck, get allergy testing to determine the source.
