American Cockroach Allergy IgE Blood Test
The American Cockroach Allergy Blood Test checks for an allergic reaction to American cockroaches by looking for IgE antibodies in the blood.
Adult American cockroaches are about 50 mm or 3 inches long and are reddish-brown in color. Both female and male adults can fly. They are often found outdoors in warm, damp areas. They will enter the indoors to find food or water. American cockroaches are bigger than German cockroaches. These pests can produce allergens from their feces, saliva, and when they shed body parts. These allergens are like dust mites and get in the air through different activities such as vacuuming or sweeping.
Symptoms could include:
• Nasal congestion
• Ear infections
• Sinus infection
• Skin rash
Positive allergy test results should be discussed with your physician.
