Dust control is about stopping the entry of dust....are you beside a busy road or other dusty area?
You can seal all the gaps around a room when you are repainting - it takes time but it is worth it as the room will be much more comfortable.
Has the house got carpet?
Old carpet can have many kilos of dust and dirt trapped inside it, regardless of vacuuming.
Under door gaps can let dust into a room. Use draught stoppers at the doors.

Our daughter had sneezing problems when she first came to Australia but they cleared up once spring was finished.

Hope this helps. Good luck
