We recently tossed two bottles of allergy meds which Auros used to eat like candy but now that his allergy shots are in the maintenance phase he rarely needs them. Of course that only took care of dust mite allergies and recently some sort of pollen has been acting up so I had to go buy replacements!

I used to have a severe dust mite allergy. I tried to avoid exposure to excessive dust (still do), but didn't take pills or shots. I'm still frequently congested and really should start using a Neti pot again...

Apparently it's just endemic to this house so the only way to avoid it would have been "move". Which is odd given that this place has wood floors and our previous one was mostly carpeted but this one was way worse. I always thought the recommendation for dust mite allergies was to move away from carpeted places. For the first few months here I was convinced it was some pollen from the nearby marshes, but he had the allergy tests and it was most definitely dust mites.

When I was diagnosed with the allergy (the dust mite prick in the test swelled up quite impressively and sent red streaks up my whole arm) I too was told to avoid carpets, and to also zip up our mattress and pillows in special covers, which were pretty awful. I don't use those anymore, and we now have hardwood floors, but I have been really bad about cleaning. boyziggy bought me a special mask to use when dusting, but it makes me look like a mosquito and sound like Darth Vader...
