When cleaning your home, be sure to pay attention to hygiene and be sure to wear a mask and gloves!


According to reports from Sin Chew Daily, a woman in Hangzhou, Zhejiang, China recently developed symptoms such as cough, fatigue and fever after cleaning out a mouldy wardrobe. After going to the hospital for examination, she was informed that she had been diagnosed with fungal pneumonia.


It is reported that the woman began to have symptoms such as cough, fatigue and high fever a week ago, and then went to the Affiliated Hospital of Hangzhou Normal University for treatment.


After detailed examination, the doctor discovered from the CT Scan of the lungs that there was a foreign body similar to a "small tree bud" in the woman's lungs. Based on her symptoms, the doctor initially diagnosed her with fungal pneumonia.


The woman claimed that she discovered mould in the closet at home a month ago and started cleaning the mouldy area in the closet. However, due to the lack of protective measures, she inhaled a large amount of dust and impurities during the cleaning process, and then developed mild paroxysmal coughs.


At first, she thought it was just a common cold and she would be cured by taking antipyretics at home. However, her symptoms lasted for three days and her fever persisted, with her body temperature reaching as high as 40°C. Upon seeing this, her friend immediately sent her to the Affiliated Hospital of Hangzhou Normal University.


In addition, doctors remind that this humid environment is very suitable for mould growth. Moulds can not only cause lung infections, but also a variety of infections in the mouth, skin, urinary system and gastrointestinal tract, and may even cause systemic infections. For people with allergies, inhaling mould may also cause allergic reactions.


After understanding the situation, the doctor performed a fiberoptic bronchoscopy on her and eventually found a large number of white plaques on the walls of her airways. After testing, it was confirmed to be Aspergillus infection.


To prevent fungal infections, doctors recommend that you:

1. Improve your own immunity and get enough sleep

2. Always wear a mask, long sleeves and long pants when cleaning, and change clothes as soon as possible after cleaning

3. Dry quilts and carpets regularly

4. To prevent mould growth, you can place a moisture absorption box or dehumidification bag in a humid area, or use a dehumidifier and air conditioner to control the indoor humidity between 40% and 50%.

5. Minimise indoor green plant cultivation to prevent the growth of mould in the soil

6. Do not store too much food and throw it away immediately if you find mouldy food

7. Don't eat food that has been left overnight


It has been raining a lot in Malaysia recently. Everyone must do a good job in preventing moisture to prevent the growth of mould!
