Really Cockroaches Can Spread Parasite Worms?
Good night,. I want to ask. R nDoes cockroaches transmit worms to the human body if we step on them? And is it possible that parasitic worms can live in the body of insects and can infect humans? R n r nThank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Stepping on many cockroaches reported by ordinary people can cause a person to have a worm infection. This is actually not clinically proven.
Some types of worms can indeed enter the body due to its ability to penetrate the skin, for example hookworms. However, hookworm is very unlikely to be found on the surface of the skin or the inside of a cockroach's body. More likely this worm is found in the body of a cat, dog, or other pet. Most of the time, these worms enter the human body through soil contaminated with animal feces in which the intestine is present in the intestine. Usually, this is susceptible to people who often do activities without using footwear.
Although it is unlikely to cause intestinal worms, however, that does not mean stepping on a cockroach cannot cause health problems. If you step on cockroaches with bare feet, then you risk inflammation in the skin, either because of irritation, or allergic to the surface components of the cockroach's skin. Inflammation of the skin is often characterized by itching, burning, redness, or also skin that swells and bruntusan. If on the surface of the body of this cockroach there are many harmful microorganisms, then your skin that is in direct contact with the cockroach can also become infected.
Therefore, avoid stepping on cockroaches with bare feet or holding cockroaches with hands without any protection huh ..
I hope this helps.
