We don't often think about mold exposure causing problems with our mouths. We may have bit into a piece of moldy food and found that unpleasant, but this is different. Black mold and other spores in the air can cause symptoms such as bloody saliva or a metallic or dirt-like taste in our mouths. You and your family may also experience a coated tongue.
Mold exposure can cause people to cough up blood or have the taste in your mouth. Some people have also reported sores in their mouths, but it isn't 100% proven that this has to do with mold exposure or is just a side-effect. Regardless of the cause, we can all agree that mold exposure is not a good thing and can lead to horrible health problems.
It's not the mold spores that really do the damage, it is our own bodies trying to protect us. Our immune system kicks into gear, trying to repel the mold invaders. These reactions manifest themselves with the runny noses, bloody mouths, and other symptoms.
Mold spores can act as an irritant, though. Even if you're not allergic to the mold, you may still experience some discomfort or other symptoms.
