Mold allergy - symptoms and how to test
Moulds are common fungi found in nearly every environment on Earth. Indoor moulds thrive in damp, gloomy environments. They can be dangerous for those whose immune systems have developed sensitivities to them. Moulds can aggravate allergy symptoms in some people. Individuals with weakened immune systems or chronic lung conditions are at a higher risk of developing a mould allergy. Mould spores are in the air we breathe, and those who are allergic to them typically have respiratory problems. A positive result on a test for mould allergies provides conclusive evidence that mould is the source of the symptoms.
