Do you suffer from allergy symptoms indoors? Often people don’t realize that the air quality indoors can be worse than the outdoor city air pollutants. Between the dust and dirt that’s tracked indoors and pet hair or smoke, it’s no wonder people have a flare-up indoors.
Another cause of these symptoms could be mold. There are more than 100,000 types of mold that are found both indoors and outdoors. Some of these varieties are harmless while others can be toxigenic. Even those that aren’t toxic can still impact humans and cause allergic reactions.
Some symptoms of mold include:
- Nasal stuffiness
- Throat irritation
- Coughing and/or wheezing
- Asthma symptoms such as shortness of breath
- Eye irritation
- Skin irritation
- Lung infections
- Chronic conditions such as cancer, pulmonary bleeding, liver and kidney conditions
