The most common symptoms of mold allergy include sneezing, coughing, bloodshot or watery eyes, and itchy skin, nose, eyes and throat. If you have asthma, mold spores can make your asthma worse, causing wheezing, shortness of breath and coughing. Symptoms can be triggered indoors or outdoors, and may appear only seasonally or last all the year long.

If you have symptoms that you think may be caused by mold allergy, you should talk with your doctor. This is especially important if your symptoms last for more than two weeks, or if they're causing severe breathing problems. Your regular doctor may recommend that you see an allergist, or a doctor who specializes in allergies and their symptoms. Your doctor will be able to diagnose your condition and will also be able to recommend the best treatment options for you.
