If you are allergic, minute airborne particles of dust mites’ skin and feces can make you sneeze.

Watery Eyes

Allergies can irritate and inflame the eyes. If you are allergic to dust mites and you are exposed to them, your eyes will likely become red, irritated and watery.

Runny Nose

A runny nose is an infection-fighting response. When allergens, such as dust mite skin and fecal matter, enter your nasal passages, your nose will go into mucus-production mode to wash out the passages and get rid of the contamination.


When something irritates nerve endings in your nose, you cough. Dust mite matter can start the coughing.

Facial Pain or Pressure

Facial pain or pressure is a symptom of allergic reaction or an inhalation allergy. Sneezing and a runny nose usually accompany the pain or pressure.

Under-Eye Puffiness

Allergies to dust mites can cause under-eye puffiness. The area may appear bluish due to the swelling in such a thin-skinned area. A wealth of blood vessels directly underneath the skin provide the color.

Sleep Interruption

Sleep interruption is common with dust mite allergies. Allergic symptoms such as coughing, sneezing and runny nose can interrupt your sleep.
