Dust mites: Common cause of allergy symptoms
House mite allergy is a hypersensitive reaction to proteins in the excretion of dust mites. The protein attacks the respiratory passages causing hay fever, (otherwise known as seasonal allergic rhinitis, is an allergic reaction to airborne substances that get into the upper respiratory passages - the nose, sinus, throat - and also the eyes. and asthma.) It will aggravate atopic dermatitis (a form of eczema -skin inflammation)
How dust mites cause allergies and asthma
As dust mites proliferate, so do concentrations of the residue from their feces and decaying bodies. If you're sensitive to this residue, you may develop signs and symptoms of hay fever, such as sneezing, runny nose and itchy, watery eyes.
If you have asthma, high concentrations of dust mite residue can trigger frequent and severe asthma signs and symptoms such as lung congestion, wheezing and shortness of breath. You may be especially prone to asthma attacks at night, when you're lounging on a mite-infested sofa or sleeping in a mite-infested bed.
They are microscopic creatures thrive in warm and humid environment and feed on flakes of human skin, fungi, bacteria, and animal dander. The mites prefer to live in upholstered furniture, carpets, mattresses, bedding and soft toys and, because we spend about a third of the day in bed, we inhale and come in contacts with the dust mite allergens. Dust mite droppings (Proteins) are known as allergens.
If you're sensitive to house dust, you know that even a single whiff of dusty air can trigger allergy symptoms and asthma. But dust itself probably isn't the cause of your misery. Instead, dust mites microscopic creatures that live in dust are the most likely culprits. To learn more about Allergies and Dust Mites, please http://www.iaqsg.com/
Dust mites inhibits even the cleanest homes. The residue dust mites leave behind — droppings and decaying carcasses — mix with dust and become airborne.

Dust mites are one of the most common causes of perennial asthma and allergy symptoms.
