RESPIRATORY HEALTH

 

People with asthma who are allergic to mold tend to have reduced lung function, increased hospital visits and may even die from asthma-related illnesses.

If you have a mold allergy and asthma, your asthma symptoms may be triggered by exposure to mold spores. In some people, exposure to certain molds can cause a severe asthma attack. Signs and symptoms of asthma include:

  • Coughing

  • Wheezing

  • Shortness of breath

  • Chest tightness
