I saw my Consultant last week and he gave me results of a blood test. Aparantly I have high levels of allergen towards
Fungi and Mold - I have Allergic Asthma, other allergies are dust mites, animal hair and grass/flower/tree pollen.
I was just wondering if anyone else here has it. The Doctor said it's all around, inside and outside,
So no real treatment. I may be prescribed anti fungal drugs if necessary. Just wondered how far to go in reducing the allergen at home.
I understand it can grow beneath carpets that get wet - so maybe I should change by bathroom flooring, as have carpet now.
I live in a privately rented flat. My Asthma is unpredictable at the moment. I have days with no symptoms at all and feel
well then other days I struggle to do my job and have wheezing and tight chest. I was on steroid tablets for about six months.
Have been off them for six weeks and had an exacerbation and had to go back on a five day course.
I would really appreciate any comments/help on the fungi issue
Thanks for reading
