Dust Mites and Eczema

We found this little tidbit the other day on how house dust mites can play an important part with taking control over your eczema and we wanted to show it to you. Below is advice for people with Atopic Eczema.

KEEPING THE HOUSE DUST MITE AT BAY; WHAT ARE HOUSE DUST MITES?
House dust mites are tiny relatives of spiders and ticks which love to live in warm, damp places and are presented in all our homes. It’s not the mites themselves that cause problems but their droppings, which can cause problems for people who are atopic.

WHERE IN THE HOME CAN HOUSE DUST MITES BE FOUND?
House dust mites are found in the largest numbers in mattresses and bedding where there is a good supply of their main food source – flakes of human skin which we all shed when we are in bed. House dust mites can also make their home in carpets, curtains and soft furnishings.
