Can Your Body Grow Mold?

Mold on the Skin

Mold can go on any biodegradable surface, and your skin falls into that category. Several things can cause mold to grow on your skin. Treatment varies according to the cause. The most common cause is excess moisture on the skin.

Another is an excess of yeast buildup on the skin, which is a type of fungal infection. Keeping humidity levels low in your home, and keeping your skin as dry as possible helps to prevent mold from growing on any surface, including the skin.

You can also seek medical treatment if you suspect an infection of some type. Once you do, remember that clothing can hold mold spores. Be sure you wash your clothing and bedding in hot water before you use them again.
