I have mold in my house ever since I moved here I’ve been sick it started to probably when I had food poisoning with mold in it I do doctors give me so much medication penicillin anabiotic’s all kind itching rash medicine everything you can imagine
Sorry to hear that, hope you are better now.
How do you know it's food poisoning with molds in it? Moreover, a mold is a fungus. If it's really the case, doctors would give you antifungals instead of antibiotics. Also, if you are allergic to the antibiotics, your doctor could change your medication.
I lived in a place that had black mold, it took my senses from me, I couldn't smell or taste anything.

I lives there for a tear and a half , my boyfriend at the time started caulfing really bad .

So I got out the pinesol out and started cleaning,  that's when I found the black mold, I had a shelf built into the wall, it was pretty far up, so I got a chair, climbed up and saw black mold everywhere, I  did some further investigation and the storage room was full of black mold.

It didn't take me long to talk to my landlord and demand my deposit back, moved out and it took me a while to get all the mold out of my lungs .

If you are living in a place with mold of any kind, get out or have it perfecianly cleaned.
The molds got inside your lungs? Scared to think that it could get worse if you didn't start cleaning. Why isn't there a sign for us?!
Hey y’all want to go

You can buy bottles of black seed oil at your local pharmacy. For people with an autoimmune disease, many articles have mentioned that black seed oil can help improve the immune system. If you take any prescription medications regularly, talk to your doctor before starting to take black seed oil.
