Hello Readers I am a nurse and was hired to write this portion of today’s newsletter. So many ask Can mold cause health problems?
Molds have the potential to cause health problems especially if they have been stasis for long periods of time. Molds produce allergens (substances that can cause allergic reactions), irritants, and in some cases, potentially toxic. Inhaling or touching may cause allergic reactions in sensitive individuals. Allergic responses can include but is not limited to sneezing, runny nose, red eyes, and skin rash . Allergic reactions to mold are common. They can be immediate or delayed. Molds often times can cause asthma attacks . In addition to the above , mold exposure can cause irritation to the the eyes, skin, nose, throat, and lungs . . Research is ongoing for any other health effects.
One of my patients came into the clinic with many symptoms mentioned above. series of tests were done with no avail until one day the doctor decided to run a skin test which revealed positive for mold. The patient was shocked as he was subjected to mold . upon further research mold was found in his office that was there for long periods of time. Perhaps if you have any of these symptoms call us for a free inspection .For free visual mold inspection please call 818-696-4449
