Mold Allergy Symptoms

You might not know mold is even there, so this article will give you some major symptoms that mold is present and that you are having an allergic reaction. Most people are exposed to mold spores. Mold is a fungus that breaks down plant or animal matter, like food, wood, leaves and dirt. It's present in your home and outside of your home. It's even present in the place you work and the place's where you hang out at. Mold can even trigger an asthma attack.

Here are some major symptoms.
Runny nose
Irritated eyes, throat and nose
Shortness of breath
Chronic cough
Nasal congestion
Skin rashes and hives
Sinus headaches
Black Mold Symptoms are
Coughing up blood
Difficulty breathing
Nausea, vomiting and diarrhea
Nose bleeds
Chest congestion
Skin rashes
Memory loss

Mold allergy symptoms vary from person to person, and rang from mild to severe. You may have year round symptoms or seasonal symptoms. Do you live in a damp area or do you live in a heavily wooded area where there is lots of leaves? If you live in those type of area's you are exposed to mold.

One way of testing if you are in a place where mold is present is if you are showing the symptoms above. When you leave the place that you are showing symptoms at, are the irritants going away? When you return to the place do the symptom return? If so there is probably a large amount of mold in the area.

If you have any of these problems see an allergist for skin testing or a blood test to diagnose if you have a mold allergy.

Spring Allergies Remedies – How to Turn Your Home to an Allergy-Free Space

Spring allergies

Here is something to sneeze at: 54 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies. If you are here now, you are one of them. You know the drill: sneezing, wheezing, watery eyes, hives, nasal congestion and/or nose runs, and…you wish flowers and blooming were skipped this year.

The good news is that there are many lifestyle changes and house improvements that that you can implement to turn your house to an allergy free space. Spring allergy remedies are not only supplements and special nutrition – the inside of your house may be full of allergens that you can effectively eliminate to prevent and treat spring allergies.

9 steps to keep your house allergy-free

1. Dust-proof your bedroom by vacuuming your carpets, washing your blankets with hot water, clean your pillows and other dust catchers.

2. Change your sheets and pillowcases frequently.

3. Consider replacing carpets with hardwood or laminate flooring.

4. Close your windows and turn on the air conditioner. Be sure to change the filter every few months.

5. When you come home from outside, rinse your eyes with cool water or saline eye drops to remove clinging pollen.

6. Take a shower and change your clothes after you work or spend time outside.

7. Consider replacing your window shades for Venetian blinds, which can trap dust. If not, make sure you wash curtains often in hot water (cold will not be effective) to kill dust mites.

8. Rap your mattress in an airtight, dust-proof plastic cover.

9. Vacuum twice a week – vacuum the floor and also the furniture to remove allergens. Use a microfiber cloth to dust bookshelves and other surfaces that collect dust. Don’t hang clothes out to dry – they’ll bring in pollen.

Air Filters – The Winning Solution

Air filters are actually beneficial for all of us. Who doesn’t want to breathe clean purified air with no pollen, pet dander, dust mites and mold spores?

To people suffering from seasonal allergies, asthma or week immune system this is more then just beneficial. It’s highly recommended.

HEPA filters are the recommended ones for your air filter. They remove particles in the air by forcing it through screens containing microscopic pores. These devices work well and aren’t too expensive. Get one for the main rooms in your house, or move one from room to room regularly.

Avoid air-filtering equipment that generates ozone (HEPA filters don’t).

Children benefit from the cleaner air and even pets have been positively affected when heap filters are used. The number of pollutants trapped by a HEPA filter and the filters ability to trap such small particles is what makes it so unique and beneficial.

This HEPA filter is rated no.1 in the market (that’s why it’s a little expensive)

Did you know that HEPA filters never need replacement?

“I bought this air purifier because my infant was showing signs of allergies – sneezing, rubbing her eyes, etc. Within an hour of turning on this filter, everyone in the household stopped having sneezing fits and our baby doesn’t have red, itchy eyes anymore. I’m amazed by how well it works. The unit is really quiet.” (Jen, Texas)

Problem: Allergies are caused by an overreaction of the immune system

Solution: Omega 3 supplement. The omega-3 fatty acids DHA and EPA, found in cold-water fish, algae sources, and supplements decrease inflammation in your body. An allergy attack happens when your body’s immune system over reacts and causes inflammation to get rid of substances you are allergic to. Omega 3 supplement will reduce this inflammation in your body. That’s why omega 3 is also beneficial for  arthritis, migraine headaches, menstrual cramps, and asthma.
