Dust mite allergy sufferers are at risk of developing allergic asthma
If the symptoms of a dust mite allergy are not taken seriously and are not treated in time, the allergic reaction can spread from the upper to the lower airways. The disease can progress to the bronchi, and eventually lead to chronic bronchial asthma. If a house dust mite allergy is not diagnosed or treated correctly, this progression takes place within five to eight years in approximately 20% to 50% of allergy sufferers.
Asthma is not curable and often means life-long treatment with maintenance and rescue medication, and the need to exercise and learn breathing techniques. Quality of life can be significantly reduced.
To prevent allergic asthma from developing, it is important to take any dust mite allergy symptoms seriously and to treat them as soon as possible. The less the allergy sufferer comes into contact with the allergens triggering the symptoms, the less the immune system and airways will get irritated.
Exposure to dust mite allergens is something you can prevent! If you protect yourself from inhaling dust mite allergens – especially during the night – you can dramatically reduce your risk of developing dust mite triggered allergic asthma.
