Most mold symptoms are caused by mold allergies. When you breathe in mold spores your immune systems responds by creating allergic reactions. These reactions are the immune system's defense against foreign particles entering the body.
The more a person is around mold the more sensitive to it they will become. This means that they can end up unable to tolerate being around even small amounts of mold. Their allergic reactions will also become more and more severe.
Symptoms that mold allergies cause include:
Cold or flu like symptoms
Irritated, itchy throat
Difficulty breathing, shortness of breath
Irritated, itchy skin
Skin rash, hives
Red, bloodshot eyes
Hair loss, baldness
Hay fever symptoms
