Mold Allergy Symptoms
Mold allergies present themselves in many different ways. In fact, many people don’t realize they have mold damage in their home because they recognize their mold related allergies as something else – such as a cold or other types of allergies. Recognizing mold allergy symptoms and a mold test are the only way you’ll know for sure if your illness is due to mold allergies or another issue.
Those sensitive to mold allergies often experience symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, sneezing, runny nose, and water eyes. These symptoms mimic those of allergies and the common cold so it’s easy to see why a mold allergy sufferer would be confused. However, some additional symptoms that may or may not be present may point you in the right direction. Some additional mold allergy symptoms include: fatigue, skin rashes, bloating, headaches, hair loss, and toe fungus.
Mold spores can also be breathed into the lungs. In most people, their immune systems take care of this and prevent mold growth from occurring in the lungs. However, if your immune system is compromised or if you’re in the older crowd, mold growth may occur. This can cause intense breathing issues. Medications need to be prescribed in these cases to stop mold growth.
If you’re experiencing these symptoms, contact a mold mitigation company to have a mold test done in your home. A mold test or mold inspection is a quick, easy test to determine if you have a mold problem that may be causing uncomfortable allergy symptoms in you and your family. Once it is determined mold is present, a mold mitigation company can remove the mold damage and find out what is causing it so it can be fixed as well.Tweet
