Mold and mildew thrive in damp environments - both outdoors and indoors - where they can trigger a range of symptoms in people with mold and mildew allergies.
Mold and mildew release microscopic seeds into the air. These seeds, called spores, can cause allergy symptoms similar to other airborne allergens like pollen, dust, and dander. Initial exposure may trigger sneezing, a runny nose, and an itchy nose. And your eyes may start to water and feel like there is something in them.
With ongoing exposure, your existing symptoms worsen and new symptoms may develop, like stuffy nose, sinus pressure, and an itchy throat. If your symptoms worsen at a specific place, like your home or at work, but improve when you’re not there, then indoor mold may be the culprit. Your symptoms may continue virtually year round if you have an indoor mold problem or live in a damp climate.
Once you recognize the signs and symptoms of mold and mildew allergies, you can take steps to reduce exposure and prevent symptoms so you can feel confident as you take on the day.
