If you suffer from a dry cough at night, or you just can not fall asleep for a long time, complaining about discomfort, irritation, and similar factors, then simply revise your own bedding, including pillows. According to experts, you can be disturbed by dust mites.
Research in this area held by a group of scientists from the United States. According to the head of the research group Dr. Lisa Okerli if pillows were not changed for about 10 years, they can have dust mites. These organisms can provoke allergic reactions, dry cough and watery eyes.
It should be noted, however, that bedding remains cells of dead skin, which feed dust mites. Researchers note that these organisms are not dangerous in themselves, and allergic reactions are caused by a substance such as an enzyme, which is produced bu those mites. It is necessary to take into account the factor that in people who have chronic respiratory problems or allergies, the situation is aggravated even more.
To prevent this, you can regularly make a wet cleaning, and laundry, change pillows. In addition, experts recommend not to fill the bed, and leave the room on the ventilation. This type of mites like heat and humidity, so these conditions are critical. It is recommended to wash bedding at 60 degrees, since such high temperatures can beat dust mites.
