Is dust driving you dotty?

Top tips for tackling it, from Hopes Relief skincare

advisor Lindsey Miller

It not the dusts, it's not even the dust mite, but proteins in dust mite droppings

which is associated with asthma, eczema and allergic rhinitis. Mind the bed bugs

don't bite !Your bed is one of the worst places for dust mite exposure so make

sure you wash bedding regularly. This needs to be at 60 degrees centigrade (or

above) to kill mites. You can help yourself by buying allergen-proof bed covers.

Hoover the mattress and all soft furnishing and floors often. Use a high-filtration

vacuum cleaner with filters capable of retaining a high proportion of the smallest

particles (HEPA filter, S-class filter or similar). Damp-wipe or dust all surfaces each

week (or more often if you can!) and wash washable toys at 60 degrees or if only

lower temperatures are possible place the toy in a plastic bag in the freezer first

for 12 hours to help kill off dust mites. Reduce humidity by increasing ventilation,

opening windows regularly. Extractor fans can help too, and avoid drying your

washing on the radiator!

Topical irritants used indoors:

Topical irritants can be found in the form of detergents

and surfactants such as household cleaning agents,

washing up liquids, laundry detergents, fabric softeners,

furniture polish, and air fresheners. Always pick

hypo-allergenic, non-biological, natural, unperfumed

products and that are allergy-aware and gentle on the

environment. Topical irritants may also be in the products

we use on our skin; shower gels, body washes, soaps,

cleansing wipes, exfoliants, body sprays, deodorants and

talcs. Pick natural, unperfumed, uncoloured products

and those that are soap-free or specifically tailored for

sensitive skin or eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis. Typical

culprits include sodium laureth sulfate (SLS), or sodium

lauryl ether sulfate (SLES). These are found in many body

washes and shampoos as a cheap foaming agent and

can strip the skin of natural oils.
