If you have recurring allergies over more than one season, you may be allergic to mold spores or other fungi. Mold and mildew are fungi and live everywhere. Mold reproduces by spreading tiny spores (seeds) through the air. Some spores spread in dry, windy conditions. Others spread with fog or dew in high humidity. Inhaling these spores is what causes allergic reactions.
