Dust mites may be the most common symptom trigger of year-round allergies and asthma. If you have allergic rhinitis triggered by house dust mites, you may feel like you have a cold that lasts all year!
Your Atlanta Allergy & Asthma allergist will conduct a thorough history and perform an allergy skin test to determine what is causing your symptoms. After a dust allergy is confirmed, your allergist will recommend one or more of the following:
- Household changes
- Medications (over-the-counter or prescription)
- Allergy immunotherapy
Allergy immunotherapy is a highly effective treatment that naturally desensitizes your immune system over time to the allergens that cause your symptoms. There are three options: allergy shots and allergy drops, or tablets (oral immunotherapy). Speak with your Atlanta Allergy & Asthma specialist about which treatment option is best for you.
Schedule your appointment today to identify your specific triggers and to discuss treatment options that will put you on the path to breathing better and feeling better.
