Am I Allergic To My Mattress?
There are two common types of mattress allergies: latex allergy and dust mite allergy. The average adult getting the recommended seven hours of sleep a night spends 2,555 hours on his or her mattress a year. Naturally, if there are persistent and inexplicable health issues, it makes sense to question whether the mattress itself may be contributing to the problem in some way. The best way to know for sure whether you’re one of the 20 million Americans allergic to dust mites or more than 3 million Americans allergic to latex is to be tested by an allergist. However, here are a few signs and symptoms to look out for, in addition to product suggestions to help you get a more comfortable night’s rest.
