Below we describe two know fungal toxins that may cause hair loss in addition to other symptoms. Stachybotrys Some strains of this fungus (S. atra, S. chartarum and S. alternans are synonymous) may produce a toxin, which is poisonous by inhalation. The toxins are present on the fungal spores. This is a slow growing fungus. The dark colored fungi grow on building material with high cellulose content (wooden material). Areas with relative high humidity that are subject to temperature fluctuations are ideal for toxin production. Individuals with chronic exposure to the toxin produced by this fungus reported cold and flu symptoms, sore throats, diarrhea, headaches, fatigue, dermatitis, intermittent local loss of hair and balding and generalized malaise. Aspergillus Aspergillus is the most common genus of fungi in our environment with more than 160 different species of mold. Sixteen of these species have been documented as causing human disease. Aspergillosis is now the 2nd most common fungal infection requiring hospitalization in the United States. Exposure to aspergillus can often cause skin rashes and hair loss. Symptoms of Fungal Exposure (Mycotoxicosis) Mold toxicity is often the end result with constant exposure to mold of a toxic substance. A common misconception among allergists who are untrained in this type of toxicity levels in humans, which is technically not their area of expertise unless they have trained specifically in environmental medicine with their background in immunology, is to do general allergen testing. Most tests usually result in an unequivocal result, a 2+ or less. If you would like more information on hair loss, contact an expert for a free consultation.
