Are you suffering from asthma or any other types of allergy? According to the Allergy and Asthma Foundation, nearly 50 million people in the US suffer from nasal allergies. For most cases, the trigger is a microscopy bug called dust mite. Luckily, you can now get effective allergy relief with the use of high-quality, portable carpet cleaners.
Let’s try to know more about dust mites first.
For a lot of people, asthma is the curse of their existence. Some are lucky to have mild and few episodes. Asthma can flare during strenuous activities or may react to allergens, chemicals, and even emotional stress. In all cases, it can become worrisome to deal with even for those who have had it for several years.
Asthma causes reversible narrowing of the bronchioles due to inflammation of the mucous membranes or contraction of the diaphragm. If this happens, the patient will experience a tightness in the chest, difficulty breathing, coughing and wheezing with phlegm or mucus. And because this is a chronic condition with unpredicted patterns of exacerbations and remissions, it is very important to know how to control it.
You breathe a sigh of relief because the cold weather is near. Time to say goodbye from the pollen during the fall season.
Unfortunately, when the winter season finally came, you are surprised to find out that your allergy is here to stay.
Clearly, there is no issue with pollen. So, what is happening here?
Do you know much about dust mites and bed bugs? Often, these bugs are lumped into the same category in our minds; both are tiny, uninvited guests who make themselves at home where they are not wanted.
They cause those creepy-crawly feelings to travel down our backs. Do you suddenly have the urge to scratch just thinking about them?
Although they may seem alike, up close, (and under a microscope) they are very different.
First, let’s take a look at dust mites.
Both irritate the lungs, both exacerbate lung conditions like asthma and allergies, and both are hard to clear out of the house.
Aren’t they the same thing, ask many people. They both make people miserable, right? Let’s take a look at the characteristics of each, then we’ll tell you how to deal with them.
