Allergy symptoms to mold

Common Questions and Answers about Allergy symptoms to mold


Avatar f tn ve been pregnant for almost a year, no its not morning sickness) ~tingling/pain in my arm including joint pain in my wrist and elbow (no injury) ~Extreme pain from my hip to my knee (my doctor thinks may be sciatica) I know I am senstive to mold in general as I have a skin allergy to outside mold (skin rash from mold on the leaves).
Avatar f tn So we moved into an apartment and my symptoms got a tad better but not by much. I went to every doctor you can imagine, had all kinds of tests and no one found anything wrong. It's been about 3 months in the apartment now. I had a lyme literate doctor look at me who did blood work and even though it came back negative, part of it came back slightly positive and he believes I have Lyme.
Avatar n tn They did a blood test for mold and it came back i was right about the mold, they said i was allergic to mold and dust. They gave me medacine for the breathing, symbicort and some depression pills. The breathing has got a little better but not 100% but the chest pains are still there. The pain is mostly in the middle of my chest. I just want to know if this is normal with an allergic reaction/exposure to mold?
485259 tn?1519047026 Hi Julie Sorry to hear you are going through all that, TN is enough on it's own. I don't know much more than you do about the mold, it's one of those things that seems hard to get an answer to, hard to find a direct exposure/dx. Try the link above and see if you can get some more information as well as some of the related discussions. I'm not an expert so I can not advise or diagnose, but I personally always wonder.
Avatar f tn I had asthma symptoms go down to almost nothing after 3 months of allergy shots but now 6 months into them, it's worse than ever :(

Avatar n tn What is important is you must find out what is causing this allergy. Common allergens are pollen, mold, dust, pet dander, cosmetics or drugs. You must get an allergy test done, either a skin test or by RAST, to know what you are allergic to. Mold can be present in the air conditioning at home. Putting the mattresses out in sun, vacuum cleaning, finding out if there are cats or dogs in immediate neighborhood etc should be carried out.
Avatar f tn How about mold or mildew? I had anaphylaxis during my allergy testing because of mold.
Avatar f tn I have black mold on my balcony, which is dripping down from the roof of my apartment building. I have not been to a doctor, yet, because I cannot equate my symptoms to the mold. The doctor will tell me it is all in my head, until I can be more specific. Have you been tested for black mold allergy symptoms? What is the test, and how reliable are the results? Have you sued an employer for black mold poisoning? Do you have parasites?
Avatar f tn Allergy shots decrease sensitivity to allergens and often leads to lasting relief of allergy symptoms, however what you are suffering goes way beyond that. I think it is not within the scope the specialty of the allergist, that you will find effective treatment at this point. Can you temporarily stay somewhere else (should your house be found unhealthy to inhabit)? Can you find a holistic doctor than can treat your "Systemic Infectious Condition" and rebalance your immune system?
Avatar m tn It seemed like we were in the doctors office every other week. Finally they sent us to see an allergy specialist. They ran the allergy test and found that indeed my youngest son was allergic to mold. I didn't know where the mold spores were coming from so we did an extensive and massive clean up of our home. Low and behold the mold was mainly behind the washer and dryer in the laundry room. The doctor wanted to put son through a series of allergy shots, which I researched.
Avatar n tn I have been diagnosed as being allergic to dogs, mold and dust. So I have to stay away from my dogs as much as possible as well as keeping our house as dust free and mold free as possible. I have been getting allergy shots for over a year and they seem to help somewhat. BUT, the AIR CONDITIONING problem has not been helped much at all. Now that spring is here, the air conditioning in my office makes me wheeze, and unable to breathe.
Avatar n tn I would suggest having an allergy test (skin-*****) test done to determine if it's allergy-related (particularly pollen, dust, and mold). But you mentioned that anti-histamines didn't help so that may not be the problem. My other thought is that it could be caused by a fungus, not necessarily a mold-allergy, but just irritation from the mold or fungus. Is there a lot of industrial pollution in the area? It could be air pollutants that your body isn't used to.
Avatar f tn Is it possible for allergies to persist even after you've removed yourself from the allergy inducing environment? I started getting allergies after moving into a new place and I think it may be the dust. But the allergy symptoms persist even when I'm away from the place, though with less severity. Do I need to stay out of the place for a prolonged period of time to see relief? Thanks in advance.
Avatar m tn It would be cheaper to test for mold at home than go for allergy tests unless you look at mold allergy only. Also only those susceptible to mold can catch the symptoms and others not. Yes, it can also be the detergent and if you leave the windows open and air the room well, with time its effect will go. Take care!
Avatar m tn Well, HIV symptoms do not appear within 20 days, except for flu like symptoms. But since the symptoms started after the episode, do get a complete STD panel (which includes HIV, gonorrhea, trichomonas, Chlamydia, etc) done to be on the safe side. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar f tn Mold allergies can give you all of the above symptoms. I have snow mold allergies, mold allergies, and allergic to the worst mold of all...penicillin. lol I can't take allergy pills as they either make me sick or put me to sleep ( so much for non-drowzy ) so I take the baby liquid allergy medicine. No gluten in it. I really feel for you. Have your ears and eyes tested, just to make sure the dizziness isn't being caused by either of those. Keep us posted. And good luck.
Avatar n tn People who are allergic to molds may also show allergy to dust mites and pollen. So pls try to avoid them as much as possible. Take care and do keep us posted on how your mother is doing.
