EXPLORE YOUR SYMPTOMS
If you feel like you deal with allergy symptoms all year, it might be because you’re allergic to house dust mites.
When it’s cold outside, we tend to spend more time indoors—where house dust mites live. And when we turn our heat on, house dust mites and their waste move around the house, causing more exposure—and symptoms. In fact, house dust mite allergy is often mistaken for a cold in the fall and winter.
Unfortunately, house dust mites don’t stop being a problem when the weather gets warmer. And if you’re allergic to outdoor allergens, like tree or ragweed pollen, it can add on to your house dust mite allergy and make your symptoms worse.
Find out if its time to talk with an allergy doctor, allergist, or ENT (ear, nose, and throat) doctor.
