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.
