Can mold on a bathroom wall cause Tonsillitis? Is it dangerous to pregnant women?

Can mold on a bathroom wall cause Tonsillitis. And is household mold dangerous to a pregnant woman in very early pregnancy? We moved into a new home 2 weeks ago, and in those two weeks a large amount of mold has developed on the walls. The owner of the house says that this is nothing out of the ordinary, and simply needs to be cleaned up often.

hi.. thanks for using HCM..
you are shifting to the house, has fungus on the wall..
this will cause allergy and bronchitis to those whose are susceptible.
pregnancy is not a special situation to get affected with this environmental fungus..
if you are immunocompromised, there is a risk of infection and complication..
better to clean it up before you shift..
all the best..
