Fill in our questionnaire for a quick assessment of your allergy risk General Condition Colds usually follow a typical course with one peak in symptoms, and resolve themselves after 7–10 days. Do your symptoms last for longer than 10 days? yes no Do you often feel tired? yes no Do you often experience headaches? yes no Do you lack concentration in your everyday activities? yes no Do you suffer from a general feeling of being unwell? yes no Environment Colds have the same symptoms wherever you are. The symptoms of a mite allergy are more severe indoors, but also occur when using public transport or in humid areas. It is therefore important to know where your symptoms are aggravated. Do the symptoms primarily occur indoors, on public transport or in humid areas? yes no Are the symptoms worse in bed? yes no Do the symptoms occur when you make your bed? yes no Do the symptoms occur when vacuuming or dusting? yes no Do the symptoms occur outdoors, in fields or on grass? yes no Special foods: Shellfish allergy Shellfish contain the same allergen as house dust mites. If you suffer from a shellfish allergy, you must also receive treatment for a mite allergy. Shellfish allergies can also be treated effectively using mite allergy treatment. Contact can also trigger symptoms. Have you already been tested for a shellfish allergy? yes no Have you noticed one or more of the following symptoms after consuming or coming into contact with shellfish? Stomach pain, belching, nausea, vomiting yes no Itching on the neck and in the throat yes no Swelling of the mouth and throat yes no Skin rash, skin irritation, skin redness, itching yes no Allergic rhinitis, runny nose yes no Red eyes, tears yes no Tightness in the chest, shortness of breath yes no Affected Organs Mite allergies produce symptoms that can affect a number of organs. Sometimes, only one organ is affected, but in other instances several are affected at the same time. This makes it difficult to differentiate a mite allergy from a cold.

IgE antibodies remain in the body and respond to allergens throughout a person's life, which is why allergies should not be trivialized. Even older tests can provide valuable information. Have you ever tested positive for an allergy (of any kind)? yes no Have you ever tested positive for a mite allergy? yes no Have you ever tested positive for a shellfish allergy? yes no Result If your result is displayed in grey or green, you have no or a very low risk. If your result is displayed in yellow, it indicates you have a low risk. A result that is displayed in orange indicates you have a high risk, and a result displayed in red indicates you have a very high risk of suffering from a dust mite allergy.
