What Are the Common Side Effects of Mold

What Are the Common Side Effects of Mold?

Mold is a fungus that has been around for thousands of years. It thrives in moist environments and may be detected on food products that have been left out for an extended period. Mold may also be found in houses where the humidity level is high, and there is insufficient ventilation.

Mold may cause a wide range of health issues, depending on the kind of mold, the quantity present in the air you breathe, and your general health.

Mold may produce the following adverse effects:

  1. Nasal Congestion. Airborne mold spores may induce nasal congestion, postnasal drip, and other respiratory issues. Mold spores have also been linked to cold and flu-like symptoms.
  2. Respiratory Problems. People with asthma or respiratory difficulties may notice worsening breathing symptoms, such as wheezing and coughing. Some persons who are sensitive to mold may have a severe response after breathing the spores.
  3. Headaches. Mold may cause headaches, dizziness, and extreme exhaustion in those exposed to it for a lengthy time. It is because mold poisons are discharged into the air.
  4. Skin Irritation. People who have skin sensitivities, such as eczema or acne, may worsen their skin issues, such as dryness and redness.
  5. Infections. People with compromised immune systems may be more susceptible to illnesses after inhaling mold spores.
  6. Eye IrritationPeople who are allergic or sensitive to mold may develop eye discomfort after being exposed to mold-contaminated settings, such as a moldy room or building.
