Who Are at Risk?
If you have allergies and they started to resurface, you’re probably aware what’s the cause or what triggers the allergy attack. In the past, you may have worked so hard to prevent these allergens if you want to prevent yourself from suffering from discomfort and other health complications.
There are certain people who are at more risk of having severe complications when exposed to mold spores for a prolonged time. If you’re among in one of these groups, you must be wary of your risks.
People with Weak or Compromised Immune System – The human’s immune system works to get rid of allergies and other illnesses. If a person is living with HIV, going through chemotherapy, or has an autoimmune illness, they are at high risk of developing further complications when exposed to mold. Mold spores are a very strong allergen and people with a compromised immune system, exposure to it means quickly having complications.
People with Allergies – People with allergies must know how they’re exposed to mold spores. People allergic to dust know that the trigger of the attack is the mold in the house. However, what if you’re not allergic to dust? Does it mean that you’re safe living with mold? The answer is no. There are people allergic to mold when ingested rather than inhaled. A person without mold dust allergy can develop complicated when he/she ingested something that contains mold. Foods such as dried fruits, mushrooms, and soy sauce are prone to mold growth can cause allergic reactions when ingested.
People with Lung Illness – Like a person with a weak immune system, people with lung disease are more prone to hazardous complications when exposed to mold spores. Mold spores, when circulated to the air and inhaled, can lodge in the lungs and for someone with lung illness, this can lead to severe symptoms and even infections.
