Dust Allergy


Allergy is a disorder of immune system that is often called atopy. Allergic reactions occur to environmental substances known as allergens.

Dust mites:

  • These are extremely small microscopic organisms that live in dust and also in pillows, carpets, mattresses which are not frequently laundered.
  • Dust mites multiply easily in warm and humid places. Most of the asthma patients are sensitive to dust mites. People who are allergic to dust mites react to proteins in the bodies and faeces of the mites. These faecal particles are found in large amount in pillows.
  • When an allergic person sleeps with his nose in direct contact with such pillow he experiences allergy symptoms.

House Dust Allergy:

  • While cleaning or dusting the furniture some people may experience running nose, sneezing, itching in the eyes, watering of eyes.
  • Such people are allergic to house dust which is a mixture of dust mites, fungi, moulds; cockroaches' etc.Such allergens can cause production of special antibody called IgE which brings an allergic inflammatory response.

Signs and Symptoms:

  • Sneezing
  • Running nose
  • Cough
  • Nasal blockage

Treatment and Management:

  • Use washable blankets and spreads, and wash all bedding (including pillows without cases) every week.
  • Use dust mite covers (airtight plastic/polyurethane covers) over pillows, mattresses, and box springs.
  • Remove carpeting or vacuum frequently using a vacuum cleaner with high-efficiency filters.
  • The conventional treatment includes use of antibiotics, anti-allergens and  certain nasal sprays for blockage of nose, cough expectorants etc.

Homeopathic treatment:

  • Homeopathy treats the disease from the root and does not suppress the disease in any manner. In homeopathy, there are a number of remedies that will help in this disorder. The patient's physical and mental symptoms are considered and a remedy is administered depending on the totality of the symptoms.
  • Homeopathy medicines take care of the body’s exaggerated response to the dust mites by boosting the body’s immunity and reducing the tendency of the body to that response.
  • Thus Homeopathy reduces the susceptibility of the individual to these dust ,mites etc which are unavoidable in the atmosphere and there is a decrease in the severity and frequency of the symptoms on each episodes of exposure.
  • Thus instead of opting for temporary relief from the conventional medicines which in the long run prove ineffective to help the patient with the symptoms, Homeopathy deeply uproots the patient’s frequent tendency to develop allergic response to dust.
