What Is Mold Allergy?

If you have an allergy that never ends when seasons change, you may be allergic to the spores of molds or other fungi. Molds live everywhere, and disturbing a mold source can disperse the spores into the air.
Mold and mildew are fungi. They differ from plants or animals in how they reproduce and grow. The "seeds," called spores, are spread by the wind outdoors and by air indoors. Some spores are released in dry, windy weather. Others are released with the fog or dew when humidity is high

Mold allergies have always been a serious problem for many people. Research in the field of environmental health has yielded tests such as the MELISA assay, which is capable of identifying whether or not a person is allergic to specific epitopes associated with any particular mold. If a person is found to be allergic, the remedies listed below are often helpful in reducing allergic reaction.

I read you post. This is informative and helpful...
All of us are exposed to some mold every day with no bad effects. We may breathe in mold spores that are present in the air or eat foods in which mold has begun to grow. People with mold allergies, however, may have a reaction if exposed to too much of the fungus.

Mold has well-known associations with human disease. People can develop fungal infections of various types, especially those with poorly functioning immune systems. Fungi are also known to produce toxins, which have been blamed for causing various diseases.

For those concerned about potential high levels of mold in their home, I'd recommend talking to a professional about having a mold inspection performed

Your ideas are really appreciable; you can add more to your ideas as I also have some related ideas. Mold prevention is very important for maintaining good indoor air quality. Moderate to severe mold inside a home usually only occurs when water is leaking for a long time, or water damage is left to fester for long periods. While many people will only notice a few symptoms when it comes to their health, it’s basic symptoms like these that will be exacerbated. I have been in the same business for many years now and can understand the grave consequences that it can cause if remediation is not done at the earliest.Nice sharing.

My brother gets it all of the time and it's a pain.
His fingers swallow pretty bad and it's painful.
He was prescribed some drugs but he;s still pretty sensitive to mold.
Keep mold at bay because it can become a nightmare fast!
