What Are Some Dust Allergy Symptoms?


According to the Mayo Clinic, common symptoms of an allergy to dust include sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes, nasal congestion, itchy nose, post nasal drip, cough and facial pressure and pain. A mild dust allergy presents itself as a common cold with symptoms such as a runny nose and sneezing.

The Mayo Clinic explains that a severe or chronic dust allergy results in persistent sneezing, cough, congestion, facial pressure and in some cases an asthma attack. In patients whose symptoms are persistent, scheduling an appointment with a doctor is important to evaluate whether the cause is a dust allergy or a common cold.
