How Mold Could be Affecting Your Health - Symptoms

How do you know if you've been exposed to toxic black mold, or other types of mold in your home, workplace, or school? Sometimes, the best way of knowing is by listening to the signals your body is sending out.

Depending on which experts you talk to, some of the following diseases can be caused by or exacerbated by exposure to mold:

  • lung disease
  • cancer
  • brain damage

Obviously, this brief list shows that mold exposure and mold related illness is not to be taken lightly. As mold invades your body, mycotoxins are relased. Mycotoxins are basically poisons that make you sicker and sicker. If you have chronic health problems that seem to be consistenly misdiagnosed, you might want to look to mold as a possible cause of such problems.

Initially, your body will react to breathing in those mold spores with symptoms such as: sniffling, sneezing, itchiness, headache, watery eyes and irritated eyes. Even your allergies might be due to mold.

If you're concerned about possible mold exposure, take the necessary steps to check for mold infestations in your home. Speak to your doctor about possible treatments for mold related illness.

Respiratory symptoms like coughing, wheezing, difficulty breathing, skin rashes, irritated eyes and throat, and more are common, while elderly people, young children or asthma sufferers could become seriously ill.

nice blog and informative information...i like this post..but the symptoms of mold exposure are generally similar to allergic reactions or seasonal allergies. Sneezing, coughing, nasal congestion and bloodshot eyes can all be related to environmental mold, as can general skin or respiratory irritation. Mold can also trigger asthma attacks in people who are allergic to it.

A couple of months ago I was having a lot of these symptoms and for the longest time I couldn't figure out what was wrong with me. After going to the doctor he suggested that I have and inspector come in. I hired someone and he quickly discovered we had mold. It was such a nightmare but now that we have gotten our mold removal done life is so much better.

Mold is stealth and will slowly creep into your home and create nuances of havoc with your family's health. The symptoms that mold produces in your home are very subtle. The huge symptoms of totally bed ridden health problems come after long, continuous exposure.

Removing the substance is quite essential because it's been linked to a variety of respiratory issues which include bronchitis and asthma together with other lung diseases. Just about everybody that has a home probably has encountered these forms of molds at some time, this is why getting an inspection performed is highly recommended on a regular basis.
