In brief: Get rid of mold
Scientific studies show indoor black mold growth doesn't cause poisoning and these molds don't produce toxins harmful to humans.
Mold infestation aggravates mold allergy causing sneezing, nasal congestion, runny nose, itchy eyes and in asthmatics cough, chest tightness, shortness of breath, wheezing. You should hire a company specializing in mold elimination and treat the underlying water leak.
