Living With Mold Can Cause Symptoms in Some People, Expert Says

Michael Knight, MD, says mold is everywhere, but it usually doesn’t cause a problem for people until it finds a damp place in homes or other indoor spaces and starts to grow. Mold growth releases allergens that can lead to symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, runny nose and eye irritation.

Knight is a physician at The George Washington University Medical Faculty Associates.
