Common Questions and Answers about Allergy control mattress covers


Avatar n tn I buy hypo-allergenic pillows (which are just a few dollars more than the regular ones), and allergy covers for them (which can be washed). Don't forget to wash any stuffed animals regularly, too, as well as change the filters in the air conditioner and dust his room. Allergy testing is a good idea, too. I hope he feels better!
Avatar f tn Hello, Treatment of bug bites by oral antihistamines. You can also apply 1%hydrocortisone cream on the effected area. Try taking Vitamin C along with this treatment. Vitamin C is a general anti-allergy supplement. It helps stabilize mast cells so they are less likely to release histamine. To reduce bed bugs , remove drapes, feather pillows and upholstered furnitur. Wash carpets and upholstery with special cleaners, such as benzyl benzoate or tannic acid spray.
118225 tn?1278654940 Hello, Cat allergen, the allergy causing material from cats, is not cat hair, but rather a protein present in the dander and saliva of cats. These allergens become airborne as microscopic particles, which when inhaled into the nose or lungs can produce allergic symptoms. Allergy desensitization shots or immunotherapy are an obvious and very effective way to work around a cat allergy. Immunotherapy will gradually make a person more and more resistant to the allergens.
Avatar m tn Hello, It looks like you are allergic to dust and dust mites which is responsible for causing air borne allergies as well swelling and congestion of the eyes.Yes dust can cause such symptoms in eyes. For now you can take some over the counter antihistaminic like as Cetirizine(zyrtec) or Loratadine(Claritin) to get symptom relief. Short courses of oral cortisone or steroids are taken for short periods (one to three days) to settle more severe symptoms.

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 It's summer - it's a big time for allergies. Even if you've never experienced allergies before, they can develop at any time. Or are you exposed to something new? Are you living in a house with mold? Working in a building with mold? Allergy-proof your house as much as you can - vacuum regularly, get new hypoallergenic pillows (old pillows hold a LOT of dust and all kinds of nasties) and get allergy covers for them.
Avatar m tn No, the drainage is supposed to happen the way it does. If it's redirected to somewhere in your head, it just sits and grows bacteria. You can have nasal polyps removed if you have them. You may not. You should talk to a doctor about this and find out if you do. The best way to avoid a runny nose is to avoid allergens.
Avatar m tn You may also want to consider a HEPA air system for his bedroom. Have you put allergy covers on his pillows, mattress and box springs? It is also recommended the non-washable fabrics (stuffed animals, upholstery, carpets, drapery...) be removed from a dust allergy patients bed room. It is also advised to keep pets out of the bedroom. Dust allergies can be hard to control, but these measures (as difficult as they are) really do help.
Avatar n tn Hello, What you seem to be having is called dust mite allergy. These are microscopic organisms, which are related to spiders, live in many homes. Too small to see with the naked eye, dust mites thrive in warm, humid environments — eating dead skin cells and nesting in dust-collecting bedding, fabric, carpet and furnishings. Treatment includes avoidance of allergen. To reduce dust mites in your home, remove drapes, feather pillows, upholstered furniture, non-washable comforters and soft toys.
Avatar m tn t use mattress pads. Cover mattress and pillows with plastic covers. Lower the humidity in your home. You can use antihistaminics like benadryl, zyrtec, decongestants and corticosteroids. In severe cases, Immunotherapy is advised. Also ask him to get his TSH levels and thyroid hormones done. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
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.
15695260 tn?1549593113 So I have seasonal and year round allergies. Basically, I'm allergic to everything. I always sleep with my windows closed, though I am fortunate to have AC. I have allergy covers on my pillows, and probably should on my mattress, but don't. I take off my shoes at the door so I don't track anything through my house, like pollen. I dust and vacuum at least weekly, if not more (I have one of those robot vacuums). This helps eliminate any pollen or whatever in the house, too.

Avatar n tn Hello, You seem to be having pollen hay fever or allergic rhinitis. Most pollens are windborne; they can often blow indoors (typically through open windows and doors) and trigger allergic symptoms such as allergic rhinitis (hay fever) within your home, not just outdoors. Wind-pollinated trees, grasses, and weeds produce pollen during various times of the year. Many people who are allergic to pollen may show allergy or cross reactivity to dust mites or molds also.
127529 tn?1331840780 When my nephews would come to visit, the thing they got the most kick out of it is those egg-carton style foam mattress covers, which we put on the twin beds (under the sheets of course). If they are put on "eggies up," the kids enjoy running their toes over the bumps at night. We would just get one king-sized one and cut it in half for the twin beds. Incidentally, along with smooth cotton sheets, one other kind we like is the tee-shirt material sheet, i.e., cotton jersey.
Avatar n tn Hello, From the symptoms it looks that you have hay fever or allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis is a collection of symptoms, predominantly in the nose and eyes, caused by airborne particles of dust, dander, or plant pollens in people who are allergic to these substances.As you are having the symptoms mostly at night the one thing that needs to be probed is dust mite allergy which is common in mattresses and pillows.

Avatar f tn Hello, Keep your mattress in sun for one or two days and then cover it with mattress covers or encasements after thoroughly vacuuming the mattress. Also flip over the mattress after one or two days. Hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing. Kind regards.
Avatar f tn Hello, You should not use nasal sprays for long periods because they can only provide short-term relief for catarrh, and using them for any longer can make your symptoms worse. For dust allergies, apart from the prescribed medicines, reduce dust mites in your home. For this remove drapes, feather pillows, upholstered furniture, non-washable comforters and soft toys. Replace carpets with linoleum or wood.
