Why does a new air mattress only cure my dust mite problems for a few days?

They are everywhere

Mite
Dust mites are not just in your mattress. They are in your clothes, your carpet, your curtains, and all your upholstered furniture. Most allergists are able to help you figure out how to reduce (not eliminate) exposure to dust mites.

How do i treat a dust mite bite?

Not biting

Open-uri20130403-27429-17o3hm6
Dust mites and their feces are a common trigger of allergic reactions such as allergic rhinitis and triggering asthma. Dust mites DO NOT bite, so no need to worry about that.

What kind of vacuum cleaner should I get for a dust mite allergy?

A maid

Allergies
The best thing is to let someone else do the vacuuming. HEPA-filter vacuums help some, but they still stir up the dust around them because of the exhausted air coming out of the vaccum. At least see if you can trade chores with another in the household, and stay out of the room where the vacuum is running!

Dr. Gary C. Steven answered:

Need a futon for my new apt. Tend to have allergies. If I get a used one, could I get a dust mite allergy?

Not really

Allergic
If you're genetically predisposed to develop a dust mite allergy, you will be exposed to enough dust mite allergen that an allergy will develop. It may come on faster if you have huge, frequent exposures, but an old futon in and of itself won't CAUSE the allergy. Beat the cushions (outdoors!) when you first get it, then get it steamcleaned to remove as much dust mite allergen as you can.

I use headphones that cover the ear completely and was wondering if they can get dust mite problems as I have a allergy to dust mitesThanks?

No

Ear
The ear canals are not the site dust mite favors. Their favorite dwelling place is your bed (mattress, pillow, box spring, and even comforter). I hope you have mite-proof encasings on the above items but don't expect miracles even if you have the covers on these items.

What do dust mite bites look like?

Dust mites

Mite
Although dust mites eat remnant of human skin they do not eat humans and do not consequently leave marks. Are you thinking bed bugs which leave blood red spots on skin and frequently blood spots on sheets.

How should I treat dust mite bites?

They don't

Mite
House dust mites, although related to the spider, do not bite. If something is biting you, look for bed bugs or fleas. The usual treatment is application of a cortisone cream, a prescription one if necessary.
