MOLD ALLERGIES

 

Like any allergy, mold allergy symptoms are triggered by an overly sensitive immune system response. When inhaled tiny, airborne mold spores the body recognizes them as foreign invaders and develops allergy-causing antibodies to fight them.

Mold allergy causes the same signs and symptoms that occur in other types of upper respiratory allergies. Signs and symptoms of allergic rhinitis caused by mold allergy can include:

  • Sneezing

  • Runny or stuffy nose

  • Cough and postnasal drip

  • Itchy eyes, nose and throat

  • Watery eyes

  • Dry, scaly skin
