Brief Answer:
Can cause breathing difficulties

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome.
I have gone through your query.
I think you are referring to black mold and no mole.

How you have exposed to it? Is it there in your home?

People living in homes with toxic black mold are exposed mainly through breathing in toxic black mold spores and mycotoxins. Toxic black mold mycotoxins create irritation and a burning feeling in a person's air passages such as the nasal cavity, mouth and throat.

You may get symptoms like runny nose, itchy nose, sore throat, Stuffy, blocked nose, burning sensation in mouth, coughing, breathing difficulties are seen.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
