Ruchi Koshta*, Akhilesh Ayachi and R. P. Mishra

ABSTRACT

Some airborne fungi can cause allergy as well as severe infections, especially in poor indoor air quality environment, i.e. kitchen. The paper presents a pilot study taken to know if the fungal load in kitchen environments; especially in India, are correlated with allergic symptoms in persons who are in regular contact in such environment. Skin prick allergy tests were used for the evaluation of fungal allergy and sensitivity levels. The results showed that almost all isolated fungi triggered allergenic reaction in volunteers. Aspergillus versicolor, Cladosporium herbarum, Cladosporium sp. and Penicillium sp. were the highly allergenic fungi in kitchen environment of Jabalpur.

Keywords: Air quality, fungal load, fungal allergy, kitchen environment, skin prick test.
