No: The emergency room is only for emergencies. Exposure to mold is not an emergency and one should NOT go to the emergency room nor an urgent care center for that. Exposure to mold is a situation for one's primary care doctor. One's regular, primary care doctor can take care of it, or refer to an allergist.
