Health Tip: Is Dust Causing Your Allergy?

(HealthDay News) -- An allergy to dust can lead to lots of teary eyes, sneezing and coughing.

The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology says sources of dust discomfort could include:

  • Dust mites, which are most often to blame for a flare of allergy symptoms. These tiny creatures thrive in warm, moist environments.
  • Cockroaches, which shed tiny particles that contribute to house dust.
  • Molds, which can grow throughout your home, especially in moist, warm areas.
  • Pollen, which may be spread by trees, weeds and other plants.
  • Pet allergens, which may include dander, saliva and urine.
