Rodent allergy

Rodent allergy: Introduction

Rodent allergy: A rodent allergy is an adverse reaction by the body's immune system to rodents such as mice and rats. The allergy is usually associated with the skin, saliva or urine of rodents. The body's immune system produces immunoglobulin E (IgE - an antibody) and histamine in response to contact with the allergen. The specific symptoms that can result can vary considerably amongst patients e.g. skin and respiratory symptoms. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Rodent allergy is available below.

Symptoms of Rodent allergy

Treatments for Rodent allergy

  • Avoid contact with the allergen, antihistamines, bronchodilators for asthmatic symptoms
  • Animal allergy is best treated by prevention of exposure to sensitising agents. Where this is not possible, treatment of allergy is dependant upon the type of allergic symptom, the body system affected, and the severity of the reaction. Treatments for animal allergies include:
  • Allergen avoidance and minimisation of exposure
  • Antihistamines - Useful for allergic rhinitis and some allergy mediated skin conditions. Not helpful in asthma except for mild seasonal asthma where allergy may be a precipitant
  • Nasal sprays - including topical steroids and antiinflammatories used for allergic rhinitis
