Mold Allergy Symptoms

Mold allergy symptoms vary from person to person.  They may be mild, or quite severe, especially if your mold allergy triggers asthma.

Mold is very common, and grows anywhere that is damp and not too cold.  In temperate climates, mold growth peaks in the spring, and again in the fall.  In damp tropical or subtropical climates, mold is steady, but may vary with the amount of rain.

If mild, mold allergy symptoms may come to feel normal for you.  You may not realize you have a mold allergy because you always feel just a little off.

Mold Allergy and Asthma

Mold allergy may be a significant asthma attack trigger.

There is some research to suggest that asthma may actually be caused by mold exposure.
