Dust mites are one of the most common allergy and asthma triggers that lurk inside your own home.
While these microscopic creatures resemble small bugs, dust mites don’t actually leave bites on your skin. They can, however, cause skin rashes. You’re also more likely to have other allergy symptoms, such as sneezing and postnasal drip.
Dust mites aren’t to be confused with bedbugs, which are a separate type of species that leave visible bites on your skin.
If you have continuous allergy symptoms throughout the year, it may be worth talking to a doctor about possible dust mite allergies. While difficult to get rid of completely, there are ways you can manage dust mite populations in your home while also treating your allergies.
