Dust Allergy Directory

Dust is made of dead skin flakes, pet dander, lint, food bits, pieces of bugs, bacteria (and other living organisms), and dust mites and their feces. Dust mites love warm, moist areas and are worst in the summer. Because dust is everywhere, dust mites can cause major problems for those with allergies to them. Treatments include avoiding dust when possible, medications, and possibly allergy shots.
