The mite allergy is a type of hypersensitive reaction to proteins
in the emission of dust mites. These proteins attack the respiratory
passages developing the hay fevers and asthma conditions.
It also triggers the atopic dermatitis especially in the people
who have tendency to this problem. Dust mites are generally found in
all homes, they are microscopic organisms that flourish in the warm
and humid ambience with lots of food and human skin.
Usually the mites live in the beds and easily enter our bodies
through inhalation. When these mites are inhaled or touched to the
skin, the body generates the antibodies which effects the discharge
of chemicals known as histamines that results in swelling and
irritations to the upper respiratory passages especially developing
the asthma and hay fever like symptoms. However, the tendency for
alergy is frequently inherited.
