Allergy Awareness Week 24th – 30th April 2017

by Hayley Wilkinson|27th April 2017

Welcome to Allergy Awareness Week!

Hosted annually by Allergy UK to help raise awareness on common allergies and how to combat them. Throughout the week they will be offering help and guidance on allergies and how to cope with them.

As a nation, over 21 million of us suffer with allergies and we have some of the highest prevalence rates of allergic conditions in the world. Each year, allergy related conditions cost the NHS a staggering £900 million a year.

One of the most common allergens that are found in our homes is dust mites, which can easily build-up in your bedding and can cause symptoms such as sneezing, runny noses and itchy eyes. They are found everywhere, from the carpets to the beds and even in your pillows! Hoovering, washing your bed set regularly and using anti-allergy bedding will help reduce the dust mites in your home.

At Comfy Quilts we produce a range of Anti-Allergy products such as our Silentnight Anti-Allergy range that are specifically designed to fight dust mites, the specially treated fibres inside our anti-allergy products are designed to help prevent a build-up of dead skin cells and bacteria which the dust mites feed off and in turn keeping them at bay – which is beneficial to everyone, not just those with allergies!
