Household mold exposure typically triggers people’s mold allergies. Mold allergies have the same symptoms as other common types of upper respiratory allergies. These symptoms include:
1. Itchy, watery eyes
2. Stuffy, runny, itchy nose
3. Scaly, dry skin
4. Itchy throat
5. Postnasal drip
Mold allergies are sometimes linked to asthma. People with Asthma usually experience more severe symptoms. Mold may trigger asthma symptoms and lead to an asthma attack. Signs of asthma include:
- Tightness in chest
- Shortness of breath
- Coughing and wheezing
People with impaired immune systems or people who are taking immunosuppressant medications are at higher risk of developing systemic infections caused by mold.
