Hello doctor, does a cockroach bite cause any serious infection or diseases? This happened with me on my neck when I was outdoors. It was a large flying cockroach. I'm just concerned that can it spread any infection through a bite? There are no symptoms of anything since it happened a week ago.

Do not panic. Nothing is going to happen. The area of bite could have produced a rash, which if had to occur would have occured within two three days, not now.
