Warning: If You Happen to See These Insects in Your Home, Go to a Doctor Right Away!
According to a recently issued warning by the Centers for Disease, Control, and Prevention, a bug called Triatomine, also known as the ‘kissing bug’ is deadly. Although the bug may seem friendly, it actually transmits a parasite known as Trypanosoma cruzi. When this parasite penetrates the body, it can cause Chagas disease.
This disease can cause cardiovascular issues and even death. The symptoms aren’t visible immediately, but two months after the bug has come in contact with the body. The most common symptoms are fever, enlarged lymph glands, headaches, muscle pain, difficulty breathing, etc. Since these signs are very similar to flu, it’s difficult to find the reason at first.
Soon as the symptoms begin, the infected individual might experience skin lesions or swollen eyelids. Also, 10% of people who have been diagnosed said that they experienced digestion issues, whereas 30% reported cardiac problems. Unfortunately, currently, there are no immunizations for this disease, but when detected early and treated properly; it can be completely cured.
In order to stay on the safe side, make sure you use insecticide spray in your household and maintain regular personal hygiene. Remember not to rub the bitten area as the risk of the disease spreading is increased because the bug defecates in the bite, and the feces infect the bite with the deadly parasite.
These are the most common areas of your home where these bugs might appear:
Stony structures, bottom of the homepage, rocks around the yard and house, chicken coop, and dog cages.
In order to be protected, seal all window, door, and wall cracks, and also remove wood and stone piles, avoid placing yard lights too close to your home, and last but not least, call the Department of Health if you happen to notice these bugs in your home.http://thehealthguide.org/2016/12/12/happen-see-insects-home-go-doctor-right-away/http://thehealthguide.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/WARNING-If-You-Find-These-In-Your-Home-Get-To-a-Doctor-IMMEDIATELY-1024x538.jpghttp://thehealthguide.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/12/WARNING-If-You-Find-These-In-Your-Home-Get-To-a-Doctor-IMMEDIATELY-150x150.jpgHealthcommon symptoms,deadly bug,deadly insect,how to stay safe from deadly bugs,serious symptoms,triatomine bug
