Mold allergies are typically characterized by sneezing, coughing, skin rashes, wheezing, runny nose, redness of the eyes and even the onset of asthma.

While over-the-counter antihistamine treatments like Claritin, Zyrtec or Allegra will help to ease the symptoms of mold allergies, destroying the mold is the key to permanently keeping them away.

If you're looking for ways to help keep your home healthy, wash bedding and any other fabrics with which you regularly come in contact. Even though it is impossible to entirely eliminate mold, it is possible to take extra precautions to ensure your mold allergies stay at bay.
