Asthma, eczema and rhinitis are increasingly common conditions. In many cases, symptoms are caused by an allergy to house dust mite allergens. Research has shown that over 85% of asthmatic children are sensitive to these particular triggers. Exposure of children in early years of life to allergens increases their chances of developing allergies. Therefore establishing an allergy friendly home is important, and this can be done through careful management of common allergens.

The house dust mite allergy monitoring system helps the user identify areas of concern within the home. It can be used to test throughout the house, on sofas, beds, carpets and soft furnishings. Full information is provided with each kit on how to deal with indoor allergens.
