It may not be a cold, it may not be an may be a reaction to hidden mold in your home.

We all deal with mold, whether it's from that 'green something' in the back of your refrigerator to hidden mold in your basement, crawlspace, or even under your carpeting.

Mold can be found in literally thousands of different species and can be very harmful to those who are exposed, causing not only immediate, but lifelong health effects.

Symptoms often mimic allergies or the common cold, and as a result can be a serious threat as they can be misdiagnosed. Likely symptoms include nasal stuffiness, eye irritation, sneezing, skin irritation, and lung infection.

As one of your most vital organs, your lungs are critical to your respiratory system. Mold fungus such as Aspergillus and Cladosporium can cause upper respiratory tract infections simply by someone inhaling or touching the spores.

If you or your family members have weakened immune systems, these people are especially at risk. Asthma attacks, wheezing, light headedness, tightness in the chest, and a heightened risk of pneumonia are possible.
