    Lol it's always the way At home I put the end in as deep as possible to empty and then hold it far away when I'm tapping it out. I've avoided being dust blown, barely

    Thanks! Where do you but these from?

    I'm going to get some dermeeze but I haven't heard of the other one. We're using advantage at the moment, pretty much all over.

    Eleuphrat is the generic brand. Diprosone was the prescribed brand name. They are very strong.
    I had used Advantan in the past, it was ok, but it was the cream, I have seen so much difference since I switched to all ointments. Yes they look like they've been covered in Vaseline LOL but it's so good on their dry and cracked skin.

    The covers I have are Protect-a-bed Allerzip. I bought them from bedding stores, Adairs had a pretty good range.

    DS's allergist recommended Allergend , they sound great as they are cotton and fully breathable, but very expensive! Out of my price range unfortunately because I had to do all 4 beds (they all have some degree of dustmite allergy, with DS2 being the worst, and I had to do my bed as he co-sleeps often). But I guess the Allerzip ones I ended up getting are good for kids as they are also waterproof, and these expensive ones are not waterproof.

    I was also recommended these by the allergist, but due to expense I decided to wait and see if other measures (the new creams, bed protectors etc) worked first, which they did.
