Mold Allergy Symptoms

 Mold Allergy Symptoms

You might not know mold is even there, so this article will give you some major symptoms that mold is present and that you are having an allergic reaction. Most people are exposed to mold spores. Mold is a fungus that breaks down plant or animal matter, like food, wood, leaves and dirt. It's present in your home and outside of your home. It's even present in the place you work and the place's where you hang out at. Mold can even trigger an asthma attack.
Here are some major symptoms.
Runny nose
Irritated eyes, throat and nose
Shortness of breath
Chronic cough
Nasal congestion
Skin rashes and hives
Sinus headaches
Black Mold Symptoms are

Difficulty breathing
Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea

Mold allergy symptoms vary from person to person, and rang from mild to severe. You may have year round symptoms or seasonal symptoms. Do you live in a damp area or do you live in a heavily wooded area where there is lots of leaves? If you live in those type of area's you are exposed to mold.
One way of testing if you are in a place where mold is present is if you are showing the symptoms above. When you leave the place that you are showing symptoms at, are the irritants going away? When you return to the place do the symptom return? If so there is probably a large amount of mold in the area.
If you have any of these problems see an allergist for skin testing or a blood test to diagnose if you have a mold allergy.
