Possible: Dust mites favor the box spring, mattress, and pillow and their droppings are the allergen which gets airborne every time you toss or turn on the bed. Mite-proof encasing on all of the above items may help. On the other hand, one is rarely allergic to only one thing and thus consider seeing an allergist if the problem persists.

Pets?: Is your home dusty? Do you sleep with allergy free and down free pillow. Do you have carpet or bare floor.? Do you sleep with any pets? All of these should be considered in an allergy evaluation. Is there a dusty environment where you live. Take all this information to your doctor and you may need testing. If you do not want to do this take allergy meds prior to going to sleep.

Typically this is caused by inhalant allergy like dust molds pets etc. to treat the cause you may need Allegy injections so that you get relief and need not depend on antihistamines etc. please visit us at www.ehacstl.com to learn more about treating the cause of illness. If interested Please make an appointment.
