Can molds cause recurrent allergic symptoms like sneezing and runny nose?

For the past six months, I've been suffering with recurrent sneezing and runny nose. For the past two weeks, my right eye has been extremely itchy. I have never had any allergies. I'm wondering if this could be a reaction to mold in my home. My symptoms seem to get better when I am away from home.

Hi Dear,

welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have symptoms of recurrent allergic symptoms like sneezing and runny nose which seems to be due to allergic rhinitis. Need not to worry. So i would suggest you to take Fluticasone which is used for allergic rhinitis. Avoid intake of cold beverages and outside food. For now you can also take zyrtec. If symptoms keeps on persisting visit ENT specialist once and get complete examination done. Start treatment after proper prescription.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.
Best wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
