Mold Allergy Success, Anybody?

Has anyone had any real success treating mold allergies? Allergy counts have been very low in my location with the exception of mold. The mold counts are soaring and so is my symptoms. Brain fog being my worst symptom. I did try Chlor-Trimenton which only caused severe side effects.
Comments appreciated.

Re: Mold Allergy Success, Anybody?

I'm still suffering from my symptoms but have recently found something that may help. I'm seeing an Environmental Allergist that tests your specific tolerance for injections and then gives them according to your maximum tolerated intradermal dose (MTID). They have a class and you give yourself allergy shots every 4 days or when your symptoms are bad. These shots are at a different dose than traditional shots and are safer for you to give yourself and you are supposed to feel the effect after weeks instead of years.

The testing is slow, as they only test you for 7-10 things per visit whict takes about 1.5 hours. There are like 14 molds they test you for and I have only been tested for 8 of them and the Dr went to a seminar arrgghh.. But I have heard of great reults from this therapy. The Doctor I am seeing is an MD with many years of experience. He also works with your diet and some alternative treatments, mostly suppliments, but his main focus is on allergy treatments.

You can also look up a Dr Roby. I think he's in Texas and had alot of information on molds on his website.

Controling your environment is paramount as you battle these triggers. Use a good air purifier and follow the traditional aspects of avoidance of these things while you look for the right treatments.

Good luck and share whatever you learn as well!
