Can Cockroaches be Causing Your Spring Allergies?

Spring is allergy season. Outside the home, allergies can be caused by trees, plants, and even pollution. But inside the home you may find some of your worst allergies don’t seem to have a clear cause. Most people are allergic to dust, but after you’ve dusted the allergies can still remain. What could you be allergic to inside of the home?

It turns out, the answer may be a lot more disgusting than you think.

What is a Cockroach Allergy?

When cockroaches infest a home, they leave a lot of particles behind. From oils to saliva and more, cockroaches leave microscopic gunk around all over your home. Experts have found that many people are allergic to these particles, and the worse the cockroach invasion the worse the allergies. These allergies may include:

  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Rash

People with asthma can have trouble breathing as well, because these symptoms are persistent which exacerbates asthma symptoms. These symptoms can also occur even when you have not seen any cockroaches in your home, because the leftovers from the roaches can last for days. Many people develop rashes when cockroach oils get on their skin as well, even if they haven’t specifically touched a cockroach.

Dealing With Unexplained Allergies in Spring

Spring allergies can be anything. They can be caused by pollens getting into your home, or dust, or a variety of other common allergens. But if you’ve seen cockroaches around your home, and you notice some unexplained sniffles, worse breathing, and more, the culprit may be cockroaches. You don’t have to see them crawling along your floor to know that they may be present, and if you’ve seen any cockroaches inside, you’ll have to assume that there are more that have been there.
