Dust or Mold Allergies

Dust or Mold Allergies

The US has over 1,000 species of mold — it thrives in warm, humid climates like Florida, Mississippi, and Louisiana. Mold spores are often invisible and airborne, which means they may be impossible to avoid.

What are the symptoms?

You may experience nasal congestion, sneezing, a runny nose, red, irritated eyes, coughing, wheezing, or an itchy throat.

What is the treatment?

Prescription antihistamines, allergy shots, and a saline nasal rinse may be part of your treatment plan.

Can it be prevented?

An allergist can help you figure out the environmental root of your allergy by having you track your symptoms and daily activities. If you plan to be around potential sources of mold, such as dead leaves, wear a mask and take a preventative antihistamine ahead of time. Using dehumidifiers and having your house checked and cleared of mold may help.
