How are cockroach allergies treated?

ANSWER

Over-the-counter antihistamines and nasal corticosteroid sprays, or prescription allergy medication will help symptoms. If you have asthma, your doctor may prescribe other pills and an inhaler.

Allergy shots may also help ease your symptoms. You'll get a series of shots over several years.
