Glores in Bunker Hill, WV 25413

Since the pandemic I have been working from home. Prior to that I was out of the house everyday except Wednesday. Back in August I noticed in the morning my eyes would be swollen. I kept putting cold compress’ on them to help with the swelling. I decided to see an opthamalogist. He did a very through test. Nothing. Everything was ok. He did say to have my PCP do a thyroid test. Now I am waking up and my whole face is swollen and red. The bags under my eyes are protruding. Thyroid test was done. All negative.
My PCP recommended I see a ENT. ENT prescribed a steroid, nasal spray and allergy pills. Didn’t help. Face is still swelling. The swelling seems to go down somewhat in the PM. But as soon as I go to bed and wake in the morning the swelling in back again. ENT results came back that I was allergic to 2 molds. I am very frustrated so I reach out to an allergist in Winchester. She does testing and says I’m also allergic to 2 molds.
We bring a mold guy out and he says that mold is present under the house. Waiting for the results of his testing.

Questions:

Could my symptoms be related to mold in my home since I am in the house all day. And why would it be evident in my face. No other symptoms. No hives, no rashes no pain anywhere else.
