Common Questions and Answers about Allergy control bedding covers

allergies

Avatar n tn i have a constant cough,running nose and sneezing and gets worse when i go to bed,any suggestions?
Avatar m tn Another thought would be your dust and pet allergy. Do you have allergy proof bedding covers on your matress, boxsprings and pillows. Those will go a long way to help reduce morning allergy symptoms. Also, you should keep any pets out of your bedroom. Lastly, showering before bed will wash away any allergens you have picked up during the day.
Avatar f tn shower and change clothes when you come in from long periods outside, shower before bed, wash bedding every week in hot water, keep pets out of your bedroom, allergy proof covers for pillows, matress and boxsprins (mainly for dust/dust mite allergy), keep doors and windows closed as much as possible. 4) consider seeing an allergist, being tested and starting shots. They really work and do wonders for control after 6 months to a year.
Avatar f tn Then get all the bedding out and vacuum thoroughly, again into a plastic bag firmly closed. Vacuum the rugs, curtains and very specially the mattress, on the seams, tufts, or folds of mattresses, pillows,bed frames, head boards, behind baseboards, pictures, frames, windows, door casings, loosened wall paper, cracks in plaster, and behind electrical wall plates.
Avatar f tn Be sure that you are taking exposure prevention measures like keeping doors and windows of your home and car closed, showering and changing your clothes immediately when you come in from outside, and showering before bed. If you suspect dust mite allergy, get allergy proof covers for your pillows, mattress and box springs and wash your bedding weekly in hot water. Fianally, keep all pets out of your bedroom. My favorite allergy treatment is the nasal rinse. I absolutely love it.
Avatar f tn Hi there! I am a first time mom so I have lots of questions :) this one is about laundry...I know you're supposed to wash the bedding and some blankets before the baby arrives but can someone help me out on what ALL I am supposed to wash before the baby comes? Is it literally everything? Every single blanket, changing pad covers, clothes, socks, etc? I have 2 months to go so want to start now if I can! Thanks!!
Avatar f tn If you are allergic to dust or dust mites it is a good idea to get allergy proof covers for your pillow, matress, and boxsprings. Also, you should wash bedding once a week in HOT water. Showering before getting in bed is a good idea as well as you get rid of allergens that have collected in your hair and don't sleep with them. If you have pets that you are allergic to, keep them out of your bedroom.

Avatar f tn A careful nasal examination, Allergen-specific testing includes Skin testing, Serum tests for allergy, Allergen challenge and as well as Evaluation for concurrent conditions like Sinusitis and Asthma is necessary and it directs further steps for management. Once, the allergen is known, you need to prevent further exposure to it. Treatment of the attack includes anti histaminic and glucocorticoids against prescription. I suggest you to consult allergy specialist. Take care and regards.
1373852 tn?1307843048 I just started taking 24 hr. clairitn today.I went to my doctor and he did some allergy testing and I am allergic to grass and dust.Around this time every year I get a week of vertigo,sore throat and chest heaviness but I have no wheezing right now.I also get this sick taste on my tounge and throat.the itchy eyes are all gone,no more sneezing but I still have the sick taste and heaviness.I have had 24 hr. heart testing so its not that,I think its just the allergies.
Avatar n tn slight dust mite allergy, did all the bedding covers, tried steroid nasal sprays, had prednisone shot ... nothing successful. Pulmonary doc: thought slight asthma and we tried a steroid inhaler also with minimal success. I'm a very healthy eater, non-smoker and not overweight. Chest xray also clear. So ... I remain in misery and undiagnosed. I'm starting to self diagnose and thinking some sort of cough variant asthma, mystery GERD or a hiatal hernia?
612551 tn?1450022175 I think I too may have a allergy to dust mites. My wife put pillow covers on years ago that are suppose to be too fine a weave for mites to go through so the favorite warm and humid (because of human) site is denied them. I also have on HEPA level vacuum which I used to carefully vacuum both of Wilson's beds and the room too.
118225 tn?1278654940 But some people have to go back to taking shots others never need to. As for when you will feel better maybe 6 months. But if you stop the shots the allergy could come back fast, so you got to keep doing it for a long time to make sure it doesn't come back. If you are going to go through all that you should do a full allergy testing. It takes the same amount of energy to cure 1 allergy as it does 50 allergies. Might as well make the most of your injections.
Avatar m tn Wash carpets and upholstery with special cleaners, such as benzyl benzoate or tannic acid spray. Wash all bedding in hot water (hotter than 130°F) every 7 to 10 days. Don't use mattress pads. Cover mattress and pillows with plastic covers and lower the humidity in your home. Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries.
Avatar m tn The Asthma Society of Canada and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America have approved many products as being “certified asthma and allergy friendly”. This includes SmartSilk bedding products. They have been proven to kill dust mites by removing the heat and moisture dust mites need to survive. The product really helped my daughter. Check out the SmartSilk website.
Avatar f tn We got rid of the cat 2 weeks ago and I have bought all the allergy/asthma things. Air purifier, bedding things etc.. I thought this would all go away once the cat was gone but I guess not. We have an appointment 1 time every 3 months for the next year. Although i am glad shes on "controlling" meds it just makes me sad that it even has to be this way. PS- my husbands best friend just died at the age of 22 from asthma- thats where my anxiety comes in.
Avatar n tn Usually the indoor pollution is much worse than outdoor, try opening up your window for 10 min a day to get fresh air in, using mite covers on pillows and bedding, buy a hepa vaccume cleaner and use it once a week (at least, also dust once a week with a damp cloth). I wear a face mask when I clean so I don't irritate my lungs. Try changing your sheets once a week. In addition to all of this I would see your doctor again to ask about a long term inhaler.
Avatar f tn but less itchy red bumps continue to appear now and then at different places.anti allergy was prescribed for 15 days,after i left having anti allergy the bumps seems to be very itchy again,also a large brown pimple appeared on the armpit.is it scabies reinfestation or post scabies syndrome? This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/243880'>Question about scabies/post scabies eczema</a>.
Avatar f tn hello, most of my itching has stopped now since a pharmacist told me to try the chlor trimeton allergy medicine. I think this was an allergy , at least I hope. I would love to go to the doctor but I don't have insurance. Now I have another problem. On some of my raised moles There is scabes in the middle of them. I don't know if I scratched them open or if it could be somethimg else.
Avatar m tn ” “For people with dog allergy, avoidance of dogs is the mainstay of therapy. Allergy medications are likely to help control symptoms, but in many instances symptoms may persist if the person owns one or more indoor dogs. Allergy shots may also be a good treatment option for people who are allergic to their pet dogs. Dog owners may not want to part with their pets, despite the symptoms they endure.
Avatar f tn 3) Have you tried allergy proof covers on your bedding - mattress, boxsprings and pillows.? Pollen and dust mites in your bedding could be part of the problem. Also, try to remove upholstered furniture from your bed room and do not allow pets in there. 4) Carpeting is terrible of allergies and allergic asthma. You may want to see about having all carpets removed and replace them with any alternative flooring. 5) How much of your furniture is relatively new?
Avatar m tn It sounds like you may have an allergy to dust mites, which are prevalent in bedding. Wash your bedding in hot water at least once a week. Try taking Zyrtec a few hours before you go to sleep. I suggest going to an allergist and being tested.
Avatar m tn He could have many things--an allergy, poison ivy, side effect of thyroid disorder. Calamine lotion should relieve the itching until he can see the dermatologist. I don't know of anyone who has ever had a negative side effect of calamine lotion, so either ask your dad if he's ever used calamine lotion or ask the pharmacist if it is safe to use on your dad.
Avatar n tn Testing the product on a small area of skin prior to use may help the patient avoid a more pronounced reaction. I suggest you to consult allergy specialist. Take care and regards.
Avatar f tn I have a question about something school-related. My daughter (4 yrs old) just started preschool Monday and I'm already a little perturbed by a few things. My question is, do I write the teacher a note and have my daughter give it to him? Or do I wait until things smooth out as school literally JUST started? These are the things that have bothered me: -My daughter came home sock-less on the first day. They are nowhere to be found. ???
Avatar f tn ve done my best to elliminate possible dust mites, and contact with my pets in order to alleviate his symptoms. I change my bedding frequently and do my best to elimate humidity in my bedroom, as I read that humidity contributes to dust mite populations. I am fairly confident that the dust in my home (it's an older home and m bedroom is carpeted) is the cause of his allergies. He does not come over to my house, but I seem to carry the allergen with me.
