Skin infected with rashes, pimples due to black mold. Dermatitis cause of black mold?

I was living in a place infected with black mold. My girlfriends are my neighbors & told me they were moving out because of the black mold in their room was causing their skin to break out. A few days later I became infected with a really bad skin rash on my face that looks like pimples that will not pop and are very itchy. I started coughing really bad although not sick always felt under the weather & had a runny nose . It went away when I went to the coast to go surfing however now that I am back in the Sierras in a dry desert environment it is coming back. We live in an area where there is no poison oak so I know this is something different. I looked on line & saw dermatitis can be caused by black mold. Any thoughts?

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Black mould and any other fungus can cause dermatitis.It is also responsible for dry cough.

Start taking antihistaminc like levocetrizine.

Get your room and clothes fumigated.Keep room temperature warm which will kill fungus.

Hope this will solve your problem.Take care.
