Outdoor mold spores begin to increase as the temperatures rise in the spring. Molds are microscopic fungi that produce spores, which spread through the air and can trigger or aggravate asthma symptoms. Unlike pollen which you can see everywhere, you might not notice that mold spores floating through the air.
Mold allergy symptoms can be similar to those of other respiratory allergies:
- Nasal congestion
- Runny nose
- Irritated eyes
- Itchy throat
