Any tips for newly diagnosed dust mite allergy? Doctor said “cover your bedsheets”, what did they mean?

      Also make sure to wash your sheets with hot water. This helps kill the dust mites! I usually try to wash my sheets once a week, which is a pain but definitely alleviates some of my symptoms

      I agree, I *think* they mean buying dust mite protective covering for your bed

      There are some dust mite protective pillowcases/bed covers. Maybe they meant that?

      I dont know what they meant. But you can buy allergy blocking mattress covers and those are cool. Change your pillow case like once or twice a week. Dust with baby wipes (less chemicals and traps dust), clean any fans or ceiling fans in the house; you wouldnt believe how fast they build up dust. I hope this helps!
