anaphylaxis from dust mites?

could someone get anaphylaxis from too massive amount of dust mites I mean breathing dust mites..?
Could someone get over anaphylaxis with his inhaler.. and antihistamine?
I know I get this anaphylaxis from allergy shots but I`m afraid I did get it few days ago on a croweded dust mites place.. I had some symptoms but I got over it without andernalin.

Re: anaphylaxis from dust mites?

I know that some allergists have all of their patients who get allergy shots have epipens with them. You might want to ask for a prescription and then you will be covered no matter what. I know you mentioned that your office is full of dust mites and it is high in humidity. Could you get a small dehumidifier for you office and pull up the carpet and clean it out really well?

I believe you could have an asthma attack, yes. But I've never heard of anaplayaxis from dust mites. You should check with your doctor, as they would know best.

Where exactly were you? What else did you test allergic to? I suspect you might have additional allergies causing your problem. Did your throat close up, or were you just having trouble breathing. I would guess you had an asthma attack , not anaphylaxis.
