In brief: Lots of options

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.
