Dust mite reduction programs have been shown to reduce symptoms and medication requirements in house dust mite allergic children and adults. These strategies include polyurethane dust mite-proof pillow and mattress covers, weekly hot water washing of bedding, and exclusion of furred and feathered pets from the sleeping area.
