User :   I recently moved into a new rental house and since I moved in (June 2010) I've had reoccurring problems with my ears, nose, throat areas. I've had tonsilittis 6 times. Additionally, I always have headaches, drainage, and my sinuses are sore. I will go to the doctor, take an antibiotic and it will go away, but within a few days after I finish the medicine, white spots appear on the back of my throat. Could this be mold? Additionally, some of my clothes are beginning to show what looks like black mold. Please help!
