Yes, I don't think mold can be a direct cause, but it triggers the asthma as part of an allergic reaction.

crunchymama19 Yes, I had a lot of asthma issues as a child and mold was one of my triggers. My husband as an adult is allergic to some kinds of mold.

I recently read a blog wriiten by a mould specialist which says mould in our home can cause allergies asthma and other breathing issues even in adults. If then it can have serious effect on toddlers! Is this really true?
