Are You Allergic to Roaches?

Are You Allergic to Roaches?

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) declares May to be “National Allergy and Asthma Awareness Month.”

It is peak season for asthma and allergy sufferers and a perfect time to educate yourself about these conditions, and more importantly, how you can help yourself!

On that note, did you know that many people are allergic to roaches? Their “exoskeletons” can cause severe allergic reactions in sensitive individuals when they become airborne. Roaches’ digestive enzymes and saliva are allergens as well. Yuck, roach spit!

Prolonged exposure to roaches has also been shown to aggravate asthma symptoms. Cockroach allergy can be a major factor in serious asthma and nasal allergy. Cockroaches tend to be a problem in inner-city areas, multifamily dwellings, and around areas of food preparation. But really, roaches can live anywhere!

Here are a few ways to keep these nasty little creatures at bay, so they’re not able to aggravate your asthma or cause an allergic reaction:

  • Make sure all entry points into the house are sealed.
  • Make sure food is locked and stored away.
  • Place screens over vents and pipes that lead inside the home.
  • Inspect the house on a regular basis for any signs of an infestation.
