    Exposure to damp and mouldy environments may cause a variety of symptoms or none at all. Some people are sensitive to moulds or may have an allergy to mould. For these people, moulds can cause nasal stuffiness, throat irritation, cough, wheeze or eye irritation. In some people with asthma, mould can trigger an asthma attack or make asthma symptoms worse. If you are concerned about symptoms similar to any of those mentioned or concerned about moulds in your environment see your occupational health physician or GP.
