Effects of mold in my house

Hello, I'm from France, excuse me for my poor English. I have black mold in my bedroom, and i want to know if mold or spores can cause skin problems or hair loss ? Thank you.

I was recently diagnosed with upper repository syndrome after living with someone with visible mold in the crevices all over his bathroom. It was very gross but I had no other option. Once i realized the diagnosis was from that house I had to stay elsewhere ASAP. Please get the mold  professionally cleaned. Don't just cover it up or paint over it. It will re-emerge eventually
