Allergic reactions occur when the body's immune system responds excessively to substances known as allergens. The immune system mistakes these harmless substances as harmful invaders and releases chemicals to fight them off, causing allergy symptoms. An allergic reaction to Mucor Racemosus can cause symptoms like coughing, wheezing, skin rashes, and irritated eyes. This test helps identify the presence of specific antibodies (IgE) that the body produces in response to the mold, thus confirming if you are allergic to it.
