Dust mites are tiny animals that you cannot see. They live in pillows, blankets, carpets,and soft materials around the house. They eat dead skin that all people shed each day.For this reason, they are also called house dust mites.
After a dust mite eats, it gives off waste. A dust mite allergy means you are sensitive or allergic to the waste of dust mites. This is a common cause of eye irritation, nose
symptoms, and asthma.
Dust mites like to live in the dark and need about 50% humidity to live. They like warm,dark places. The best way to reduce dust mite exposure is to focus on the bedroom.
