Dust Mites

Rash
Over-the-counter or prescription allergy drugs can help control symptoms. Antihistamines relieve itching, sneezing, and watery eyes. Decongestants help with nasal congestion. Nasal steroids reduce swelling in your nose so you can breathe better. Allergy shots (immunotherapy) may also be an option. They treat allergies over a long period of time. Ask your doctor if they make sense for you.

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.

I suffer from dust mite allergy for like 5 years. I'm doing immunotherapy shots for 3 years, and no substantial good results.And Drugs don't work.why?

Ask the allergist

Allergic_reaction
Too many variables to answer this. Your diagnosis or shots could be wrong. You should ask the allergist or physician who is prescribing the shots and if you cannot get a satisfactory answer consider a second opinion with another allergist. Look for allergists certified by the American Board of Allergy and Immunology. A good source is the website of the Am Academy of Allergy: AAAAI.org

Not biting

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.

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.

Dr. Lee M. Perry answered:

What is remedy for house dust mite allergy?

Lots of options

Dust_mite_allergy
Avoidance helps, which can be achieved somewhat by washing sheets/bedding on super-hot water (130 F) once per week and encasing the mattresses and pillows with dust mite covers that are impermeable to dust mites. Medications may relieve symptoms, and these medications usually include over the counter antihistamines and prescription nasal sprays. Allergy shots can cure this type of allergy.
