Test your risk

  1. Cold-like symptoms

    Common Colds usually run a typical course, where symptoms develop gradually, reach a peak, and resolve after 7-10 days.

    • Do your cold-like symptoms last for longer than 10 days?

      • Do you often feel tired?

      • Do you often experience headaches?

      • Do you lack concentration in your everyday activities?

      • Do you suffer from a general feeling of being unwell?

  2. Environment

    Symptoms of a common cold are the same, regardless of whether you‘re in an indoor or outdoor environment. Dust mite allergy symptoms are more severe indoors and tend to occur more frequently in warm and humid environments.

    • Do your cold-like symptoms primarily occur indoors or in warm and humid environments?

      • Are the symptoms worse in bed?

      • Do the symptoms occur when you make your bed?

      • Do the symptoms occur when vacuuming or dusting?

      • Do the symptoms occur outdoors, in fields or on grass?

  3. Shellfish allergy

    Many people who are allergic to shellfish also react to mite allergens, as the allergy-triggering protein in mites and shellfish is very similar. People allergic to shellfish should therefore also avoid contact with mites.

    • Have you been tested positive for a shellfish allergy?

      • Have you noticed one or more of the following symptoms after eating or coming in contact with shellfish?

        • Abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, and/ or diarrhea

        • Tingling or itching in the mouth or throat

        • Swelling of the lips, tongue and/ or throat

        • Skin rash and itching

        • Nasal congestion or runny nose

        • Red, itchy, or watery eyes

        • Shortness of breath and/ or wheezing

    • Affected Organs

      Mite allergies produce symptoms that can affect a number of organs. Sometimes, only one organ is affected, but in other instances several are affected at the same time. This makes it difficult to differentiate a mite allergy from a cold.

      • Eyes – Are your eyes red, itchy or watery?

        • Are your eyes itching or burning?

        • Are your eyes reddened?

        • Are your eyes producing tears?

      • Nose – is your nose congested or runny?

        • Do you frequently need to sneeze?

        • Is your nose blocked?

        • Is your nose running?

        • Does your nasal secretion change and turn thick and white/yellow?

        • Does your nasal secretion remain unchanged, watery and clear?

      • Lungs – do you experience shortness of breath, or wheezing?

        • Do you often feel the need to cough?

        • Do you suffer from breathlessness/respiratory distress (with normal effort)?

        • Do you often have coughing fits?

      • Skin – do you suffer from skin rashes and itching?

        • Do you often react with a skin rash?

        • Do you often have itchy skin?

        • Were you diagnosed with neurodermatitis as a child?

        • Do you suffer from acute neurodermatitis?

      • Lymph nodes – do you notice swollen lymp nodes, especially around your neck or ears?

    • Timing of the symptoms

      The symptoms of a common cold persist throughout the day. Dust mite allergy symptoms, on the other hand, are worst during the night and in the morning and usually subside during the day.

      • Do your symptoms subside over the course of the day?

        • Do you have individual or multiple symptoms after getting up?

        • Do you have individual or multiple symptoms in the morning?

        • Do you have individual or multiple symptoms at lunchtime/in the afternoon?

        • Do you have individual or multiple symptoms in the evening/at night?

        • Do you have individual or multiple symptoms throughout the whole day?

    • Dependency on location

      Dust mite allergy sufferers often find that a change of location has a positive effect on their allergy. Symptoms may subside when going on a vacation or even when changing locations during their everyday activities.

      • Have you noticed that your symptoms change when you change locations?

        • Are your symptoms better when you are by the sea?

        • Are your symptoms better when you are in the mountains at above 1200 m?

        • Are your symptoms better when you are in the office?

        • Do your symptoms stay the same everywhere?

    • Allergies in the family

      Allergies are often hereditary. The higher the number of allergy sufferers in your familiy, the higher your risk to develop an allergy as well.

      • Is there a history of allergies in your familiy – such as food allergies, dust mite, mold, or pollen allergies, pet allergies, insect sting allergies?

        • Did your mother have an allergy?

        • Did your father have an allergy?

        • Do one or more of your siblings have allergies?

        • Do your grandparents have one or more allergies?

    • Allergy testing

      Once the IgE antibodies have been produced by the immune system in an allergic reaction, they remain in the body and respond to allergens throughout a person‘s life, making allergies a life-long condition. Your results from allergy test performed in the past are still valid today and provide valuable information.

      • Have you ever tested positive for any kind of allergy?

      • Have you ever tested positive for a dust mite allergy?
