If you suffer from bronchial asthma or allergies your first line of defense should be a dust mite pillow.  Dust mites are a big contributing factor to asthma attacks and allergy flare-ups.  As much as ten percent of the weight of a pillow that is merely a couple of years old could be comprised of dead mites and their waste.

Dust mites are more prevalent during the colder months of the year because homes are typically warm and cozy.  When you use a dust mite pillow and pillowcase it prevents you from inhaling dust mites and it helps to minimize their breeding ground – your bedding.

Just by changing the pillow you place under your head each night you can rid yourself of all the sneezing, coughing, skin rashes, itching and wheezing.  It’s not possible to make your bedroom totally free of dust mites but with the right pillow you can definitely lower your chances of experiencing allergic reactions.

In addition to investing in a dust mite pillow you should also change your bed linen frequently.  Each night you shed millions of dead skin cells.  By changing the bedding every 4 or 5 days you can considerably lower the number of dust mites lurking in your bed.

This may sound a little strange to you but you should also vacuum your shams, spreads and mattresses.  This helps to reduce the dust mites by reducing the quantity of dust in your bed.  Also be sure to vacuum often and open windows and doors as the weather permits to improve ventilation.

You spend approximately one-third of your life in bed so there’s no need to have a pillow that makes you sick.  A dust mite pillow will also help guard against mold and bacteria.   One brand we particularly like is the Allergy Armor Ultra by Achoo Allergy.  These pillows are made of an allergy barrier fabric and there is no need for an additional allergy dust mite cover.

In conjunction with a protective dust mite mattress cover you can guarantee the sleeping area of you and your family is kept dust mite free for a long time to come.  A dust mite pillow is a very effective and economical way to help keep your family healthy.
