What are the symptoms of Alternaria alternata infection?

1 Answer

The symptoms of Alternaria alternata infection can vary depending on the type and severity of the infection. In general, Alternaria alternata can cause respiratory and skin symptoms, such as:

  • Respiratory symptoms: Alternaria alternata can cause respiratory allergies, including allergic rhinitis (hay fever) and asthma. Symptoms may include nasal congestion, runny nose, sneezing, coughing, wheezing, and difficulty breathing.
  • Skin symptoms: Alternaria alternata can cause skin allergies, such as contact dermatitis, which is a type of skin inflammation that occurs when the skin comes into contact with the fungus. Symptoms may include redness, itching, and swelling of the affected area.

In some cases, Alternaria alternata infections can cause more serious symptoms, such as fungal keratitis (a fungal infection of the cornea) or invasive fungal infections (which can affect multiple organs in the body and can be life-threatening).

It is important to consult a healthcare provider if you are experiencing any symptoms that may be related to Alternaria alternata infection.
