Mold / Mycotoxins and skin health


#1

Has anyone had toxin mold / mycotoxin exposure and a subsequent decline in your skin health? I didn’t even know it was “a thing”, but after 18 months living in an apartment with terrible black mold, my entire health suffered, including my face and hair.

Still dealing with it today! My hair health came back with a rigorous supplement routine, but my skin still suffers from a rash and excessive dryness (winter isn’t helping).

Has anyone dealt with anything like this and any advice?

dude omg black mold is one of the most dangerous kinds of mold. - stay far away.

I am not sure about skin or hair health but I do know that it isn’t good for people with asthma. I’ve never heard of it affecting skin and hair, but it’s quite possible.

I know mold effect people differently. So you noticed the issue with your hair and skin.Along with overall health. Glad your getting better. All you can do is try to do your own research on the topic and see if you can add valid practices into your routine.

Oh yeah, it wasn’t intentional to be around it!! It was miserable. I gained 30 lbs, my hair fell out, I was confused and had memory loss. It took me 18 months to figure out it was mold but then I immediately moved out. I’ve been treating it for a year now and still have symptoms! It’s awful!

Yes, I’m going through this now, we will be moving in April, since we can’t afford to now. I’m not sure about skin and hair, but I do have allergies and use an inhaler now

aww, well I hope you can completely recover soon.

Thank you so much! <3

Oh no!! Are you seeing a doctor? Are you taking glutathione and charcoal powder to help clean it out a little bit? I’m so sorry to hear this!


#9

I did see a dr. And they prescribed the inhaler and allergy meds. I stopped taking one. I wasn’t aware these products could help! I will look into this! Thank you so much!

I bet that using dial soap would cure it. I was having terrible skin problems and a dermatologist told me that and it worked. He said that it has mild antibacterial properties, is moisturizing, and is hypoallergenic. The dial bar soap.

Have either of you considered a colon cleanse or a liver cleanse to detoxify?

Also, did you hold your landlord accountable for having mold growing in your environment??


#12

I’ve been taking detox supplements for a year now, plus infrared saunas. I’d totally do a colonic but there aren’t really good places near me.

Also, it’s incredibly difficult to get the landlords to do anything about it. The only person who was ever successful at a lawsuit was Ed McMahon because mold killed his dog. Every govt official I’ve spoken with said the best thing to do is cut your losses and get out of the place before it gets worse :frowning:

@Melissa_Levick It’s a shame you have to be famous to get someone to handle a problem with integrity. I would definitely use my review writing power to let any prospective tenants know about the experience.
