Mold in Stall and it's Effects??

Okay, so most of you know that I've been through hell and back with Sugar and problems. We noticed yesterday that there may be white mold growing on the walls and celing from the condensation from the hay loft. So now my question is: Would mold cause itchy bumps??? and in 1 other horse, coughing?? Sugar is the only horse with the bumps though

Sugar is covered in itchy bumps again. It resemblems rainrot but is not rainrot. We are going to disinfect her stall tomorrow with Vercon to be safe. It may only be dust from the dusty shavings we had a few months ago but I doubt it.

We put her back on Antihistomine today and only took her off it last month as the bumps didn't clear up. I do have the vet comming wednesday to check her. Her bag is so big she looks like a gelding and the bumps are from head to hoof now

It definitely could cause coughing in the one horse, but I am not too sure about the itchy bumps, I don't know what that would be... Hmmm... I will be interested to see what the vet says!

I did have a skin biopsy done last October and it showed that Sugar had allergies but to the unknown and to bugs possibly. These bumps appeared before bug season started but are now worse with the added bug factor.
