What Is Aspergillosis?

Aspergillosis is a condition that is characterized by either an allergic reaction or infection of the lungs due to the inhalation of mold. The most common type of mold that causes this condition is aspergillus fumigatus, which can live and grow in both in and outdoor environments.

It’s important to note that inhaling mold usually doesn’t cause mold growth in the lungs for average, healthy people. However, those diagnosed with lung conditions, allergies, and/or immune system issues are prone to the development of aspergillosis.

While aspergillus fumigatus can grow on food and waste, it’s most often found indoors in A/C units that haven’t been properly maintained with cleaning or those which leak excess water.

Symptoms of Aspergillosis

Wondering if you or a loved one may be affected by aspergillosis?

While a diagnosis from a doctor is essential for getting needed treatment, it’s possible to identify aspergillosis by recognizing common early symptoms, including:

  • Coughing
  • Chest pains
  • Fatigue
  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath

Some more advanced symptoms of aspergillosis may include:

  • Fever
  • Sweating
  • Chills
  • Kidney failure
  • Liver failure
  • Coughing up blood
  • Mucous
  • Difficulty exercising

People with previous lung issues like asthma, COPD, and lung cancer may already experience these symptoms. However, with aspergillosis, these symptoms may get worse.

In any case, it’s best to get an accurate diagnosis from an experienced physician. This way, you can understand what you can expect regarding treatment. And get the medical attention you need to get better.
