Dust Mites Allergy
Dust mite allergens account for 80-90% of allergenic compound found in the home. They are considered to be the most common cause of Asthma and various allergic symptoms worldwide. The House Dust Mites left their partially digested food and their fecal particles, which is one of the most significant sources of allergens, such as Asthma, Rhinitis, Conjunctivitis and Dermatitis. Most of these allergenic compounds are found in the mattresses, as well as from furniture, carpet, and other upholsteries.
The dust mite produces 200 times its body weight in excrement in its lifetime. This excrement firstly adheres to the fabric as small mucous coated balls. Later on, it decomposes to a fine powder like dust. Dust mite excrement contains Guanine, which can cause various allergic reactions and serious health issues to human beings. Dust mite droppings contain Enzymes, which can break down the protective lining of our lungs, nasal passages and eyes if breathed in.
It is a scientific fact that exposure to the allergen Guanine found in dust mite excrement is directly responsible for numerous lifelong allergies. Asthma, triggered by the chemical guanine, is increasing at an alarming rate amongst children. Australian research has revealed that 80% of people with Asthma are allergic to the house dust mite. Allergy to dust mite is the 6th most serious sickness in the world (World Health Organization, 1995), and 25% of all allergies are due to dust mite.
