Mites are small insects that live on carpets, beds and all types of upholstered furniture. Mites feed on dead skin cells and cause allergies, skin reactions or problems related to asthma. When they attack the skin of the face they cause allergies, redness and different marks by which one could look very ugly.
The most common signs that there might be house mites are: A runny nose, red, itchy eyes, swollen skin, sneezing; Itching of the nose, mouth or throat palate; Congestion, cough and facial pressure or pain.
In the case of people with asthma, they experience sleeping problems, difficulty breathing, chest pain and are especially prone to colds.
