Allergy testing can help determine how severe a reaction a person may have if they are exposed to this common form of mold. Symptoms of an allergic reaction usually include skin irritation, red itchy eyes, wheezing, and stuffy nose. People with severe allergies or conditions such as asthma may have more serious symptoms such as shortness of breath or fever.
