Dr. James Sublett Discusses a New Dust Mite Allergy Treatment

Dr. Sublett spoke to Darla Carter from the Courier-Journal on a new drug that was release targeting dust mite allergens. The drug, Odactra, was approved by the FDA earlier this month. This tablet is a form of immunotherapy that is taken once a day placed under the tongue to improve tolerance and reduce symptoms.

For those allergic to dust mites, Dr. Sublett recommends:

  • Washing bed linens once a week.
  • Encasing pillows, mattresses, and box springs.
  • Use an N95 respirator mask while cleaning.
  • Don’t vacuum right before bed; this can stir up allergens.
  • Keep the humidity in your home below 50 to prevent dust mite growth
