Stachybotrys, commonly known as black mold or toxic mold, is one of the most dangerous types of mold. A biologist in the Heartland says stachybotrys "can possibly" lead to skin irriations or rashes.
We do know stachybotrys can cause mild symptoms like nasal stuffiness, eye irritations, or wheezing. More severe reactions can be a fever or shortness of breath. People with chronic lung illnesses could develop mold infections in their lungs. For some there are no problems at all. But people with asthma or weakened respiratory systems are especially at risk.
