Many who are suffering from asthma, atopic dermatitis or allergic rhinitis, are also hypersensitive to dust mite allergens. Using skin tests, about 80 % of the children with asthma symptoms also show sensitization to dust mites. The prevalence of allergies and asthma among very young infants is increasing significantly.
Dust mite allergies may be treated with anti-asthmatics, corticosteroids, desensitization etc.
“Avoidance strategy” is probably the most important measure among all the allergy management strategies – avoiding exposure to the allergy trigger in the best possible way. ALLERGIKA® has been involved in the prevention of dust mite allergy for more than 20 years.
