House Dust Mite Allergy
If you see an ENT doctor in Singapore with a blocked nose or sinus infection, he or she will often consider allergy as an underlying risk factor. The commonest allergy in Singapore is house dust mite allergy. About 80% of the adult population in Singapore has evidence of house dust mite allergy (IgE antibodies) but only half (roughly 40%) will develop symptoms of allergic rhinitis (swelling of the nasal lining).
Avoiding exposure to dust mites is the best strategy for controlling dust mite allergy. While you can't completely eliminate dust mites from your home, you can significantly reduce their number.
This ten-point plan will help reduce dust mites in your home.
Thanks for sharing. I will try to implement these methods on my blog. Thanks for sharing. Keep updating us.
It helped when you shared that avoiding exposure to dust mites is the most useful method for preventing dust mite allergy. My kids are sensitive to many kinds of allergens. I better look for an ENT specialist near my place for easy access.
Excellent article! Your post is essential today. Thanks for sharing, by the way.
It's interesting to know that there are allergen-proof bed covers out there, while we should keep the mattress and pillows dust-proof as well. I will keep that in mind if I am positive with that kind of condition when I get an environmental allergy testing service this month. I just wanted to get to the root cause of my skin itching issue which I've had ever since I was a teen.
