Mold exposure can impact you and your family's health in a wide variety of ways. Many people find reactions to mold showing up in their nose or sinuses. Sometimes it is hard to tell if your nose and sinus problems are due to an illness, mold, or some other allergy. If you have problems that seem to linger, first contact your family physician. After that, give American Home Services a call and we'll inspect your home and perform an air quality test for free.
There are many ways that mold can affect your health. You may notice small things like congestion or an itchy or tingling sensation in your nose. Some more serious problems you may notice are chronic infections, bloody noses or blood in your mouth, or asthma.
If you are experiencing nasal allergy problems even in the middle of the winter, you are most likely being exposed to mold somewhere. The mold releases spores into the air which, in turn, can cause allergic reactions in some people. If you already have asthma, mold spores may aggravate your symptoms. Some signs to look out for include, coughing and wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath. Please contact your doctor if these problems worsen or continue.
According to the Mayo Clinic, some severe problems that can be caused by mold exposure include allergic bronchopulmonary aspergillosis, allergic fungal sinusitis, hypersensitivity pneumonia, and mold-induced asthma. Whereas other symptoms make just make you feel bad, these allergic conditions can cause serious health problems and shouldn't be ignored.
