Children and Mold Sickness in Providence, RI
When you think about mold infestations in Providence, RI, schools are likely not the first thing that comes to mind. We should not take for granted that the places our children spend 30-40 hours a week in particular, are safe environments.
Children are especially susceptible to mold illness and often don’t know to report symptoms that are not immediately thought of as “being sick.” The following list contains common symptoms, some of which are regularly overlooked, and may seem long. The complete list, however, is far too long actually include.
- Abdominal pain
- Hearing loss
- Chest pain
- Muscle pain
- Dramatic weight loss
- Cold and flu like symptoms
- Recurrent sinus infections
- Hair loss
Children especially, don’t always know how to put into words what they’re feeling, or if they’re sick at all. Because of this, you should be on the lookout for mold illness related symptoms. If your child above all, is presenting the aforementioned symptoms, or anything else alarming, your first step should be to take them to a doctor. Your doctor can indeed, tell you if the symptoms are potentially mold related. If they are in any case, you can start trying to find out where the mold is coming from.
How Can I Tell Where the Mold Problem Is?
Does your child feel fine when they wake up in the morning, but by the time they are done with school, they are back to coughing and itching? There’s a good chance that the mold problem then, is in their school. Or, is it the opposite? They wake up congested with red eyes, but when you pick them up from school they’re feeling better and no longer sneezing and sniffling. In that case, the mold is likely in your home.
It can seem a daunting task, but finding the source of the mold making your child sick is an important step to ensuring their health in the future.
