Answer

The history of mold-induced asthma may not differ from that of any other allergic asthma. The onset may be acute or insidious. The patient's history usually includes cough, wheezing, and tachypnea with dyspnea with prolonged expiration.

Symptoms may be precipitated by exposure to molds, viral infections, or exposure to any irritants, especially when patients have become hyperresponsive.
