Dust mite allergy: House dust contains dust mite allergens but also, insect proteins, animal dander, molds and many other possible allergens. Dust mites can often be reduced by dropping indoor humidity below 30% with a dehumidifier. Consider a vacuum with a hepa filter. Dust mite covers for a new pillow and mattress could also help. Look for whole house hvac filter with a merv rating of 10 or more.

See details: You cannot cure it but if taking an antihistamine such as Claritin, (loratadine) Allegra or Zyrtec daily does not help, allergy shots may. You have the allergy because component found in dust particles have caused you to produce antibodies to them.
