Visitors: 196

Dustmites abound and thrive in environments where humans and good breeding grounds for the mite exist. This is a problem for people with eczema whose physical environments are not designed to protect them from dustmites. This article tells you about dust mites and how they affect your eczema.

Where do dust mites congregate?

Dust mites tend to congregate primarily in your bed, i. e. your pillows and mattresses. Secondarily if your living furniture is made of permeable fibers they will go there as well, after this they congregate in your house dust.

Why do dust mites thrive in these environments?

Dust mites like these environments in the previous stated order because it is where they are able to find an abundant supply of food if the areas are not protected against them. They will move on if they can not get what they need to live.

What do dust mites look like?

The dust mite can not usually be seen by the naked eye. They are microscopic. However under the microscope, they appear somewhat translucent, and have eight legs like a spider.

How do dust mites affect my eczema?

It is not the mite itself that affects your eczema, but it is his fecal matter that irritates you. You breathe in its feces and the proteins in the feces go to work on confusing your immune system, and causing it to react against you.

Where do dust mites come from?

Dust mites are abundant in nature, and it is unlikely that you will completely disinfect your surroundings of them. What you want to do is to make their numbers so small that their effect becomes negligible.

What is the most important thing I can do to get rid of dustmites?

The most important thing you can do when you are ready to get rid of dustmites is to enclose your bedding in a goretex bedding cover. The pores on the goretex material are so fine at 2.8 microns that dust mites which are at least 20 - 30 microns wide can not pass through it.

How long does it take to get rid of them?

If you were to treat for dustmites today, you will find that you could still be affected by symptoms for a few weeks. You will also find that the severity of the symptoms will be reduced as time goes on. The dust mites could very well be gone, but as said earlier it is their fecal matter that harms you. Once this matter has been cleaned out your house, problems from dust mites should be over.
