Do you suffer from skin allergies? Find advice and helpful tips to help you reduce the risk of allergic reactions.
Here are our tips to ensure a good indoor environment:
- Thoroughly clean your home once a week. Choose cleaning products without perfume, as perfume can cause asthma symptoms.
- Ventilate all rooms three times a day for 5-10 minutes and after showering, cooking and cleaning. Set to keep the temperature at 20 degrees indoors in the winter. This helps minimize moisture, which can prevent mould and (dust mites) mould.
- Do not dry clothes indoors as this may increase the humidity and the presence of dust mites. If you use a dryer, make sure it has an outdoor fume hood.
- Avoid cigarette smoke, which aggravates asthma symptoms and the risk of developing asthma and asthmatic bronchitis.
IF YOU ARE ALLERGIC TO DUST MIDDLE, WE HAVE SOME MORE TIPS YOU SHOULD FOLLOW:
- Wash your duvet, pillows and mattress pad four times a year at 60 degrees, and bedding every or every other week.
- Vacuuming the mattress can possibly reduce the occurrence of (dust mites) mould.
IF YOU HAVE ECZEMA, WE HAVE SOME MORE TIPS YOU SHOULD FOLLOW:
- Choose personal hygiene products without perfume and dyes. These ingredients can irritate sensitive skin and aggravate disorders such as dermatitis and eczema. They also pose a risk of contact allergy.
- Avoid very hot showers and excessive soap use as this can remove the skin's natural moisture barrier that protects the skin from irritation.
- Moisturize the skin immediately after showering with unscented body lotion to restore the skin's natural moisture level and prevent dry, vulnerable skin.
- Wear protective gloves when cleaning and choose perfume-free cleaners.
- Hand disinfection instead of water and soap can be a good solution in some cases. Always choose a hand sanitizer with glycerine and without perfume.
