Hi there. Thank you for posting your question with Healthcaremagic. I will do my best to help you.

Are you absolutely certain that you do not have a nasal polyp and/or a deviated nasal septum? Before you start any fancy injections against house dust mite you need to have an ENT surgeon, or a competent GP, look up your nose and make sure that neither of these conditions apply. If they are present they need to be dealt with now first of all.

As for the injections against house dust mite I would be very wary, particularly so if you are being charged for them!

Also your matress needs to be covered with a plastic liner and your pillow too.

I hope that I have answered your questions fully and been of some help. If you have anymore questions please contact me again anytime.

Dr Andrew Rynne.
