Moth Allergen & Contact Dermatitis
Posted by Craig on Thursday, August 23, 2007
common clothes mothThe Open Press reports that common moths can be just as damaging as dust mites when it comes to allergic skin conditions.

One study found that 60 percent of people who react to dust mites are also sensitive to moth allergen.

Moth allergen doesn't come from flying moths; rather, it comes from moth larvae, hatched from eggs that are often buried in upholstery, bedding, and clothing.

To prevent moth eggs and larvae in your favorite sweater, wash clothes frequently in hot water, and keep stored clothing in plastic bags.

In addition, you should regularly vacuum not only your carpet, but also your upholstery and under your furniture.

A good lotion also helps protect your skin from allergens and toxins.
