In brief: Mold allergy

An allergy to mold shows up as usual symptoms of allergic rhinitis, chronic sinusitis, and asthma.
These conditions should be treated by your doctor and can cause headache, sleep issues, fatigue, etc. As respiratory irritants, there is no long term effect to your health if you are not allergic to the mold and simply just remove yourself from being confined to spaces that have high mold burdens.

In brief: Many

If you are allergic, asthma, rhinitis, conjunctivitis , and rarely hives may develop.
Not all peo if you have an impaired immune system, you may have invasive fungal disease. Some may develop allergic bronchopulmonary mycosis (with aspergillus being more common) manifested usually as steroid-resistant asthma. Others hypersensitivity pneumonitis which when prolonged may cause permanent lung damages.
