Dust mites are microscopic organisms which feed off the dead skin cells shed by humans and pets everyday. A dust mite allergy does not stem from dust mites themselves, as they are totally harmless. Their feces cause you to experience a dust mite allergy, like stuffy nose, sneezing or even asthma attacks.
We spend one-third of our lives sleeping, and a mattress can contain tens of thousands of dust mites, causing dust mite allergy symptoms while we sleep. Dust mites can also be found anywhere we shed our dead skin cells—from the couch we relax on to the very carpet on which we walk. A typical dust mite produces around 20 droppings per day creating microscopic allergens, which usually become airborne. Their droppings and shed skin cells are what causes dust mite allergy symptoms. Dust mite allergy symptoms may be a factor in 50 to 80 percent of asthmatics, as well as in countless cases of eczema, hay fever and other allergic ailments.
