Who is most susceptible to mold allergy?

People who have a family history of allergies are very susceptible to mold allergy. This is true even if your family members had a different type of allergy. People with weakened immune systems are also more susceptible to mold allergies. This can include patients who are taking immune-suppressing drugs as well as those who are on chemotherapy. Also, if you work in an occupation with increased mold exposure, or if you live in a home with water damage and poor ventilation, you're more likely to develop mold allergy symptoms.
