What are some signs and symptoms of a mould allergy?

Mould spores can be breathed in, causing symptoms similar to that of asthma or hayfever, or can irritate the eye, causing allergic conjunctivitis.

Asthma-like symptoms include coughing, wheezing, having difficulty breathing (because your airways are tightened). Hay fever-like symptoms include a blocked nose, a runny nose, or sneezing. You might also cough up large amounts of sputum. Allergic conjunctivitis can involve itching and watering of the eyes. Symptoms can keep you awake at night and prevent you from getting a good night's sleep. Air pollutants, such as car fumes, smog, and cigarette smoke can make these symptoms worse.
