In brief: OTC
The treatment would be the same as most other allergies.
Avoidance, if possible is best. Otherwise, otc claritin, (loratadine) zyrtec or allegra.

In addition allergen immunotherapy has shown efficacy in desensitizing the human body to the symptoms caused by cockroach allergen. Also, can use nasal corticosteroids if antihistamines don not work.

In brief: Prevention
In addition to treatment- consider prevention.
Seal all cracks in cabinets where food is kept. Keep food in airtight containers & clean/ clear food particles off of / out of sinks, counters, floors etc frequently.
