Black Mold (Stachybotrys Chartarum Atra) Allergy Test

What is Black Mold?

Black mold is a common name for several fungal species, the most common of which is Stachybotrys Chartarum.  Black mold tends to have a dark green or black appearance and is most often found in areas where there are humidity and moisture.  The mold produces spores that can have harmful effects on someone's health when they are breathed in.  Even healthy individuals can suffer ill effects from mold exposure.  The severity of a person's reaction can rely on several factors including whether they have a preexisting condition or allergic reaction to the mold species. 

What are the symptoms of Black Mold Allergy?

The most common effects of mold exposure are coughing, wheezing, stuffed nose, itchy red eyes, and itchy rashy skin.  People who are allergic to mold or have a respiratory condition such as asthma may experience more serious symptoms such as:

                    • fatigue
                    • chronic cough
                    • headache
                    • difficulty breathing
                    • fever
                    • hives   

What is a Black Mold Allergy Test?

Allergy testing looks for IgE antibodies which your body produces in response to a specific type of allergen.  These antibodies cause the release of histamine which is responsible for the symptoms of an allergic reaction.  A Stachybotrys Chartarum IgE Allergy Test can help you determine if you are allergic to black mold as well as the severity of your allergy.  Having an allergy to one type of mold means you may be allergic to other species as well.  For a more thorough testing option, A Mold Allergy Panel can assess your allergic response to a variety of mold species.
