ALLERGY

What is Allergy?

Public attention has recently focused on Allergy because of its rapidly increasing, affecting up to one in four urban children.

Allergy is the most common chronic disease in the UK and Europe. Up to 20% of patients with allergies struggle daily with the fear of a possible asthma attack or even death from an allergic reaction.

Did you know?

In your double bed you will be sleeping with 10 million house dust mites.

Your ordinary pillow will double in weight over six months due to house dust mite droppings.

House dust mites live on the skins cells that we shed.

The house dust mite allergen comes mainly from their droppings and is so fine that it is easily airborne settling quickly into our pillows, mattresses, chairs, curtains and carpets.

Facts:

House dust mite, pet allergens and mould spores cause itchy, runny noses. Congested chests, wheezing, coughing, tight chests, shortness of breath, watery and inflamed itchy eyes.

Many allergens such as dust, dust mites, mould spores or pet allergens are airborne particles

Disturbed sleep, poor concentration and headaches.

House dust mite cause allergic reactions in 85% of children with asthma

Dust mite allergens are thought to be among the heaviest dust allergens.

We sweat 1/3rd of a litre of water in bed every night producing the warm and humid environment in our beds which is perfect for the house dust mite.

Some Statistics

The UK has some of the highest prevalence rates of allergic conditions in the world, with over 20% of the population affected by one or more allergic disorder. (M. L. Levy, 2004)

A staggering 44% of British adults now suffer from at least one allergy and the number of sufferers is on the rise, growing by around 2 million between 2008 and 2009 alone. Almost half (48%) of sufferers have more than one allergy (Mintel, 2010)

In the 20 years to 2012 there was a 615% increase in the rate of hospital admissions for anaphylaxis in the UK (Turner, Paul J., et al, 2015)

The World Allergy Organisation (WAO) estimate of allergy prevalence of the whole population by country ranges between 10 – 40% (Pawankar R, et al, 2013)

More than 150 million Europeans suffer from chronic allergic diseases and the current prediction is that by 2025 half of the entire EU population will be affected (EAACI, 2016)

House Dust Allergy

In many countries in the world, the most frequently seen reason of respiratory system allergies is house dust allergies.

Many patients very well know that allergic catarrh symptoms such as sneezing and nose streaming and asthma symptoms such as cough, growling and breath shortness occur while cleaning the house, dusting, making the beds or shaking off the carpets and blankets. The relation between house dust and asthma was first time declared by a scientist, R.A. Kern in 1921.

House dust is a mixture of many allergens. In each house, the characteristic of dust varies according to geographical and meteorological (heat, humidity, pressure, etc) factors. The main allergens in house dust are:

Allergens related to house mites

Allergens related to pets

Allergens related to cockroaches

Aspergillus

Pollens

Bacteria

Other allergens related to furniture such as armchairs, carpets, beds.

People might gain sensitivity to any of the allergens exist in the mixture defined as house dust, but the most important one of these allergens is the allergen related to house mites. When shortly said ‘house dust’ or ‘dust’ allergy this means house mite allergy.

What is Allergen?

Dust Mites and other Allergens: Everything You Might Not Want To Know!

Allergens are materials that exist in our environment and that make reactions in our bodies because of the reasons and mechanisms mentioned above. If our immune system has a tendency towards making allergic reactions, allergic findings will occur in the organ the allergy reached.

Pet allergens

Animal allergens are the next most frequent cause of allergic reactions. The allergen that triggers allergic responses to animals is found in their saliva, skin and urine. When the animal grooms, the allergen coats the skin, fur or feathers, and is spread by shed skin cells (dander) as well as by licking. The particle size of the allergen is extremely small and therefore easily airborne and breathed in, causing respiratory symptoms, itchy eyes, sneezing and skin irritation.

Mould

Allergy to mould spores and fungi are quite common and is often overlooked. Moulds are ubiquitous and present indoors for most of the year. Mould also prefer damp, warmer environments so are particularly found in bathrooms, kitchens, on refrigerator door seals, shower curtains and particularly in houses that have obvious damp patches and black mould on window frames. Due to the high level of humidity, they are also found in our beds. They reproduce by emitting microscopic spores, which are common triggers of allergies and asthma. As many as 40% of allergy sufferers are affected.

Dust Mites

Dust mites feed on flakes of dead skin (humans can shed up to 28g a week). It makes homes an ideal place for them to live. It’s not the mites themselves that cause allergies, but enzymes they leave behind in their faeces. Each mite produces about 20 droppings a day. Dust mites live in mattresses, carpets and soft furnishings – ordinary vacuum cleaners (dust-bag, upright or cylinder models) cannot remove them.

Pollen

Hay fever is caused by an allergy to the pollen of wind-pollinated plants, including numerous species of trees, grasses and weeds. Pollen is produced in huge quantities in spring and summer. Evolved for wind dispersal, it is lightweight and in some circumstances can travel several hundred miles. The seasonality of hay fever varies from person to person, depending on which type of pollen causes the reaction.

These are organic materials in ‘protein’ structure which the immune system can easily recognize. But in some way they must reach to our mucous such as skin, nose, bronchus and intestine or directly to our body for instance by injection, in order to gain sensitivity while baby and also for the allergic complaints to occur. The mostly existing and causing allergic illnesses type of allergens are called as ‘aeroallergen’. These are separated as ‘indoor’ and ‘outdoor’ allergens. 

The best example for indoor allergens is the allergy to house dust mites. The best example for outdoor allergens is pollen allergy. These allergens reach to body in different ways and they come into contact with the organ. For example, house dust mite allergens are so small that they easily reach to bronchus without being kept at nose and they cause ‘allergic bronchial asthma’ by the allergic reaction they made at bronchus. 

Pollens are bigger and heavier than house dust mites, for this reason nose operates as an air filter and pollens are kept at nose. This time they cause allergic reactions in nose mucous and they cause allergic catarrh. In the same way, because eye is a mucous too, the allergens cause allergic conjunctivitis (eye allergy). Animals, insects, aspergillus, food, medicines and many materials that used in production sector (professional allergens) might be allergens. They cause allergic findings according to the organ they affect.
