If You Want to Wake Up Without a Stuffy Nose, Then Eliminate the Dust Mites in Your Bed

Your bed is the ideal breeding ground for dust mites, tiny, crab-looking bugs that cause allergy symptoms in people all over the world.

An unprotected bed has millions of dust mites trespassing in your pillows and mattress, abundantly laying eggs and gorging on dead skin, their favorite food.

It’s not just gross; it’s unhealthy.

Dust mite poop is a powerful allergen, triggering nightly allergy attacks for you and your family.

The average mite defecates about twenty times each day and the excretions fit in what amounts to an envelope called a “peritrophic membrane,” and it is certain proteins in this envelope that are responsible for triggering most dust mite allergies.

Those fecal pellets, like dust itself, easily become airborne, and when inhaled cause a runny nose, sneezing, and clogged sinuses associated with rhinitis (upper respiratory system inflammation).

If your Doctor told you that you have a dust mite allergy, it means you are suffering because every night you and your family are sleeping in the equivalent of an insect’s toilet, full of allergy causing excrement and dead body parts.

Each female dust mite is capable of laying forty to eighty eggs in her one to three-month lifespan as an adult. Thus, while dust mites are short-lived by human standards, they also reproduce rapidly. Dust mites grow by feeding almost exclusively on the shed skin cells of mammals, especially humans.

Rhinitis From Dust Mites

Rhinitis is the medical term for upper respiratory inflammation. The inflammation results in a runny nose, sneezing, stuffy nose, and often clogged sinuses.

Dust mite allergens provoke these symptoms in persons sensitized to the allergens, usually within minutes of exposure. That “early response” may be followed by a “late phase response” four to eight hours – later characterized by fatigue, irritability, general malaise, and perhaps even impaired judgment – can be triggered after a night in an unprotected bed.

Asthma and Dust Mites

Dust mite allergens are one potential cause of the onset of asthma, and can trigger asthma “attacks” that can persist for days or weeks given continued exposure to dust mite allergens and make them more sensitive to other allergens.

For children who are susceptible to asthma, it’s even important to intervene.

The University of Kentucky reports that diagnostic tests and clinical studies by allergists have shown house dust mite to be the most common allergy in asthmatics, and an important “root cause” for the development of asthma in young children. Recent studies suggest that at least 45 percent of young people with asthma are allergic to house dust mites.

Dr. Thomas Platts-Mills, the director of the Asthma and Allergic Disease Center at the University of Virginia, concurs that a dust allergy is common among children and a risk factor for developing asthma.

According to Dr. Platt-Mills, the sooner you intervene, the less likely your child’s symptoms will escalate into something more severe.

How to Treat Dust Mites in Your Bedroom

“If you are going to use only one dust mite control strategy, your choice would be allergy covers for your mattress and pillow. “

– The Ohio State University Division of Sinus & Allergy

Use allergen-proof bed covers. Cover your mattress and pillows in dustproof or allergen-blocking covers. These covers, made of tightly woven fabric, prevent dust mites from colonizing or escaping from the mattress or pillows. Encase box springs in allergen-proof covers. – Mayo Clinic

When you buy Dust Mite Allergy Covers, they must be medical grade.

If the covers on your bed don't block dust mites, you won't get the benefits. A fitted sheet is not effective.

National Allergy has been making medical grade bed covers for since 1996 and is recomened by 1000's of doctors.

I bought these for my son and he now wakes up without a stuffy nose. Great product!

– Becky

When I purchased my new mattress, I didn’t have the extra cash to purchase this mattress cover, so opted for a cheap one from the local store. The cheap one held in heat and was so hot that I had to sleep on top of my sheets. I made sure to include this cover in my next month’s budget & I’m so glad that I did! I am extremely impressed at the high quality, and softness of the fabric. It fit my mattress perfectly (washed it first and it wasn’t too snug to put on). I was FINALLY able to sleep in my sheets and actually enjoy my new mattress. The 100% cotton makes a world of difference! The cover lets your mattress breath instead of radiating body heat. I highly recommend this allergy cover.

– Jennifer

Super soft with no noise at all. I could tell a difference the very first night. I highly recommend this pillow cover!

- Crystal Goodwin

One word…AMAZING! Prior to this, my son didn’t know what it was like to have a good night sleep. Even the first night we noticed a difference! We used this, and also got the pillow cover and vent covers for his room. He is 5 so we went with this particular cover just in-case there are any accidents at night.
