The term cockroach bite disease is used to describe any infection caused by bugs biting. A cockroach bite resembles the bite of other crawling insects. It tends to be a tiny, slightly raised bump, somewhat irritated. You can normally expect that it will be inflamed and a little bit itchy, although it’s more likely not to be inflamed. They tend to fly away with the first bit of food they encounter. If they live in areas of moist or damp conditions, cockroaches are particularly prone to disease.
The cause of cockroach bite disease is often not immediately obvious. An infestation with large numbers of these bugs can result in the same symptoms as a West Nile virus infestation. Since these pests tend to lay eggs in moist and dark areas, it can be difficult to determine whether an infestation exists without conducting a thorough search. This is why it’s important to call in an expert if you suspect an infestation. For a non-diagnosed case, an allergy to the bites of these bugs may be the cause.
Cockroach Bite Disease Signs
Some signs that you might have a cockroach bite disease are itching around the area of the bites. You may also find redness or swelling around the bites. You’ll also find that the skin where the tick or bite occurred may become itchy and inflamed. All of these symptoms can be signs that an allergy is developing. If you develop any of these symptoms after coming into contact with one of these insects, you should contact your doctor immediately.
There is also a risk of developing a skin rash as a result of insect bites. Your body will react to the insect bites with swelling and possible redness around the site of the bite. As for the swelling, you may experience moderate to severe swelling after being bitten.
