Two months ago, I was hospitalized because of asthma. The doctor gave me a lot of medicines and until now I am still on maintenance. Aside from taking a lot of medicines, I always make sure that nothing triggers my asthma. According to experts, asthma symptoms can be substantially reduced by avoiding known allergens and respiratory irritants. In my own experience, the most common allergens that trigger my asthma are dust mites. According to studies, the exposure to certain dust mites can be reduced by encasing mattresses and pillows in allergen-impermeable covers, removing carpets from bedrooms, vacuuming regularly and by using a dehumidifier.
So far I am not using carpets because I know its not good for my body. When it comes to bed covers and bed linens I change it frequently. I am excited to try using a vacuum and a dehumidifier especially for my room and check on its effect on my health.
