Customer Question

Im in Okinawa on job assignment with Air Force. I know I have allergies to mold. After a month I have laringititis(sp) and I think my body is reacting to the mold. I'm supposed to stay until end of September for work but afraid my body cannot support these toxins. Going to hotel for a hotel doctor
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?

Hello and thank you for your question. It’s my first priority and pleasure to help you.

I understand your discomfort.

As per your description,it can be possible to have mold induced laryngitis.

You should do steam inhalation and saline gargles.

Also take OTC Advil and Zyrtec at night.

HEPA vacuuming your room can also help with mold symptoms and allergies since HEPA vacuums remove spores and other allergens.

A referral to ENT specialist can be helpful.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
