Usually, people are aware of their allergies: dogs, nuts, shellfish, pet dander, eggs, hay fever, and the list goes on—but what if you just can’t seem to pinpoint what’s causing your allergic reactions? Are you waking up every morning with an allergic reaction? While it’s not common, some people may find themselves allergic to their mattresses, or more accurately, to the materials in their mattresses. If your allergies and sleep are getting out of hand, it might be time to pay a visit to your local natural mattress store.

Reports of allergic reactions to mattresses have been most commonly been seen with foam mattresses. Keep in mind that these situations are not at all common, and in most cases are not severe, but for the unfortunate few whose allergies and sleep are affected by their mattresses, the most common complaints are hives, headaches, dizziness, and body pains.

If you are one of the poor souls who find themselves allergic to any of the materials commonly used in mattress production rest assured that there are many options out there for you. A natural mattress store can offer you mattresses made with a variety of organic and/or natural materials suited to your needs. Some stores even carry memory foam mattresses made with all organic and/or natural materials as well, so you can sleep easy, knowing your mattress will not be your demise. Rest assured there is no need to trade your comfort for your allergies.

Hooked on your current mattress for comfort but still wake up with reactions? You might be inhaling chemicals that seep from the mattress interior. One option would be to buy an allergy cover that encases the entire mattress to prevent you from inhaling these chemical fumes.
