A mold allergy is a type of allergic reaction that occurs when a person is exposed to mold. Mold is a type of fungus that grows in damp or humid environments and can be found both indoors and outdoors. Some people may be more sensitive to mold than others and may develop an allergic reaction when they are exposed to it.

Symptoms of a mold allergy may include:

  • Coughing and sneezing

  • Runny or stuffy nose

  • Itchy or watery eyes

  • Dry, scaly skin

  • Headache

  • Fatigue

Mold allergies can be triggered by inhaling mold spores, which are tiny particles that are released into the air by mold. These spores can be inhaled into the respiratory system and can cause an allergic reaction in sensitive individuals.

What to do if you have mold allergy?

If you suspect that you may have a mold allergy, it is important to see a healthcare provider for proper diagnosis and treatment. Your healthcare provider may recommend allergy medications, such as antihistamines, to help manage your symptoms. They may also recommend avoiding exposure to mold as much as possible.
