Memory Foam Mattress Topper and Allergies

If you suffer from allergies or are worried about developing an allergy, you might want to consider buying a memory foam mattress topper. 

It seems every time you turn on The News there’s a new report warning us about the increase of allergies. Over eight million people suffer from allergies which can range from mile, harmless irritations such as a mild hay fever to potentially fatal peanut allergies that can cause anaphylactic shock. If you don’t have dust mite resistant bedding such as a memory foam mattress topper, you could be increasing your risk to allergens.

Avoid allergy with a memory foam mattress topper 

It is possible to manage the risks if you already suffer from an allergy – you can change lifestyle factors, maintain good housekeeping, invest in dust mite resistant bedding, including a memory foam mattress topper, and if you are at risk of anaphylactic shock exert extreme caution. If you do have a peanut allergy, it can be triggered from kissing someone who has just eaten peanuts, or touching someone’s hands who have dealt with nuts – even some processed foods that don’t contain nuts have traces of nuts that could prove fatal.

Beds can be dangerous places 

The high levels of dust mites found particularly in our beddings means we should be investing in dust mite resistant materials like the memory foam mattress topper. Beds are their favourite places to thrive, and even if you don’t have an allergy, increased dust mites will put you at risk of developing one – including asthma. If you’ve never had an allergic reaction before it can be worrying and confusing – and it could all be the fault of those millions of tiny dust mites in your mattress.

Memory foam mattress topper 

For those who do not know what is going on, the effect of an allergic reaction can be terrifying and confusion. If you are not sure what triggered it, a good place to start is your bed – ensure all bedding is cleaned weekly in a hot wash and you protect yourself with a memory foam mattress topper.

A memory foam mattress topper can help reduce the risk of allergies triggering or even occurring from house mites. An allergic reaction occurs when the body feels under attack and releases histamines – an immune attack to counteract the threat. If it is an extreme allergy that causes anaphylactic shock, the reaction is so great you can suffer swelling and throat constriction, and in extreme cases without adrenaline to counteract the effects, it can lead to death.

House mites – invest in a memory foam mattress topper 

The house dust mite is a common cause of allergy. House dust mite resistant bedding can help, such as a memory foam mattress topper. The dust mite’s life cycle is short: 

  • After mating, the egg develops for five days before hatching
  • The larva then feeds for three to ten days
  • It morphs in a protonymph which becomes a tritonymph after four to seven days, this then feeds off dead dust mites and grows for another five days
  • As a fully fledged adult, it can then begin to breed. Female dust mites lay between 30 and a hundred eggs at one time.
