MOLD ALLERGY

In the case of a mold allergy the immune system overreacts when mold spores are inhaled or touched. This reaction triggers mold allergy symptoms. Some of the common mold allergy symptoms are sneezing, cough, runny nose, nasal congestion, irritated eyes, skin rashes, headaches and difficulty breathing. Those seeking allergy relief need to know the causes of these symptoms.

Mold and mold spores are with us year round both indoors and outdoors. Although found mostly in warm, humid climates, molds exist everywhere. The air we breath contains more mold spores than pollen grains. The spores are the part of mold or fungus that cause allergic reactions. In the reproductive cycle of mold they give off huge numbers of mold spores into the air similar to pollen. When these spores come in contact with organic matter new mold grows.

For a mold allergy it is advisable to reduce your exposure to the types of mold that cause the allergy symptoms. There are some medications can help keep mold allergy symptoms under control.
