Dust Mites Pictures Of Bites
Can u send pictures of allergic reactions to wool? I been thinking bed bugs and dust mites but no signs of either?
Hmm!: Agree w dr. Klein. Bed bug bites may cause no symptoms or signs in some people. When there is a reaction, it may not show until several days after the bed bug has bitten. It can cause pink, swollen, itchy lesions on the skin. What can be telltale is when there is a linear track of lesions from sequential feedings – but that does not always occur. Here are some tell tale signs for bed bugs.See 1 more doctor answer
Different symptoms: While bug bites can lead to a rash, dust mites (and their fecal pellets) trigger asthma and allergic rhinitis especially at night. Dust mites can trigger eczema in some.

Interesting: Never heard that the skin would be susceptible to insect bites more than someone else's unless the smell of the skin- soaps, colognes, perfumes, etc. Maybe attracts the bugs more. You might try not wearing anything that has a fragrance to it- even washing clothes in fragrance free detergent and dryer sheets.See 2 more doctor answers
Been dealing with bites from beginning of the year and discovered bb in my home but my bites do not look like bb bites they look like dust mites bite?
Bed bugs: These can be difficult to get rid of. You need to consult with a professional to have your house made free of these. Dust mites do not bite.
Yes: Newspaper is not impermeable to dust mite. Impermeable mattress covers generally zip around the entire mattress to form an adequate barrier. Be sure to cover the pillows as well. Carpeting and general home humidity are some other potential targets to lower dust mite exposure.

Test and they said I scored a 1 with cat dander and a 3+ with dust mites. What do these numbers mean?
Different scores: Different labs "grade" the severity of your allergies by numbers systems. Usually the lower the number, the less severe the allergy or how your body reacts. However, the number does not always correlate to your actual symptoms. So even though you may have just a "1" score to cats, you could still have symptoms if you have a lot of exposure. Avoidance is still bst when trying to keep symtoms away.See 1 more doctor answer

Nothing to do: Dust mites are everywhere they really can't be avoided.
Dust elimination: If possible at all, stay away from wall-to-wall carpeting, fabric window drapes. For forced- air heating systems, apply filters on registers, if not, vacuum your carpets daily using a hepa filter. Wipe dust off all surfaces (no feather dusters). Keep away dust collectors - books, stuffed animals from bedrooms. Encase mattresses and pillows in dust-mite resistant material.

Some options: Use dust mite covers on pillows and mattresses, hypoallergenic pillows, latex mattress, use a hepa vacuum cleaner, vapor steam cleaner, try a quality air purifier, dehumidifier, good filters for the furnace, avoid venetian blinds & try anti-allergen carpet cleaner (best not to have carpeting).
