The best mattress for allergies

A hypoallergenic mattress is one that is designed to prevent allergic reactions. The mattress is tightly sealed to prevent dead skin cells and body oils from permeating into the material. This in turn prevents dust mites from investing the mattress. Dust mites and other microscopic organisms cause allergic reactions in humans, so it is important that a mattress is made of materials that will not aggravate allergies. Most hospitals and medical care facilities use mattresses that are wrapped in plastic or vinyl to ensure patients stay healthy. A mattress can be wrapped with a mattress wrap, plastic, or another alternative is to purchase a mattress that is made of hypoallergenic materials. Hypoallergenic mattresses are made of materials that do not induce allergic reactions.

People who suffer from allergies should refrain from sleeping on mattresses made of animal products such as hair, wool, or feathers. Animal based materials can cause flare ups for allergy sufferers. Most hypoallergenic beds are made with natural materials such as cotton or filled with artificial materials such as polymers which resist against allergy causing organisms.
