HI,
IF you are asking about the allergic reaction to mold in the house, yes it can happen. And it can cause rash and wheals on your body. Warts are usually caused by viruses and is not due to fungus or some allergic reaction. It is not mentioned about any previous medical history/ allergy, better to consult your family doctor as early as possible. Hope it answered your query.If you need any further clarification, do message me and try to include the photo of rash and the wart.

Regards,
