People who are suffering from different dust mite allergies need to make sure that they find a solution to their problem. There are many different products that you can use to help reduce the amount of symptoms that you experience with your allergies. If you are having trouble sleeping you should look to find a good hypoallergenic pillow that you can use.

Anyone who is interested in getting allergy relief needs to realize how many dust mites can build up in your pillow. There are many different mites that can work to make you nights very miserable and restless. It is often very disturbing if you think of how many mites can live in your pillow.

Hypoallergenic pillows are not feather pillows, but they're also a special fabric that doesn't keep mites. (I'm not sure what.) I recently found out that I'm allergic to dust mites - and was freaked out, but according to my doc, "As soon as you own a bed or couch for 2 months, even if you vacuum constantly, you'll have dust mites." They don't bother us directly, don't bite us, etc... they just live off of our dead skin (which we're not using anyway, so why should we care...)BUT many of us are allergic to their - ahem - 'droppings,' which poof up when you sit on a couch or bed.

I also had to get a zipper enclosure for my mattress, and also for my pillows, which can get pricey. They must be fully zipped up, and washable, and breathable, and not too hot... etc etc...

But I do sleep better, and less allergies! YAY!

Hypoallergenic pillows have a tighter weave on the out side fabric which is usually cotton and have a poly filling as opposed to feathers or chunky foam which can hold in dust. If you can not afford hypo allergenic pillows you can buy very densly woven pillow and matters pad protectors.
