Hello I had pneumonia and at the time there was mold and filters in the house was filled with the stuff that builds up in there. I was hospitalized can you tell me if mold could have caused or made my situation having pneumonia the mold made me worse.
Hello As you mentioned that you were having pneumonia . Mold a type of fungi and this can cause allergy and allergy when occurs ,the most effected organ is lungs . In lungs there develops bronchoconstriction and cough and difficulty in breathing. I want to mention that pneumonia is lung disease and allergy caused by mold is also a disease of lungs , so naturally mold will worsen the condition of the patient , who already had pneumonia. Hope this information will help you. Good luck.
