The fungi release spores into the air that may transmit the disease. The symptoms of this disease include flu-like sickness, and it may cause abnormalities in the blood, high fever, pneumonia or lead to death.
  2. Fungus transmits cryptococcosis an ailment found in bird droppings. The fungi comes from an accumulation of droppings in nests and roosting areas such as attics, water towers and ledges. You increase the possibility of infection when you do not remove the bird droppings in your property. This disease weakens the immune system but may not have any symptoms. The common form of the ailment starts with a lung infection and spreads to different parts of the body. It may lead to death, if left untreated.
  3. Salmonellosis happens when bird droppings poison the food you eat. The dust from the droppings may pass through air conditioners and ventilators, leading to food contamination.
  4. Candidiasis is another disease caused by bird droppings. This fungal or yeast infection affects the mouth, skin, intestines and the respiratory system.
