It is essential to understand that you can inhale it without catching the infection, and there is mostly no need to be paranoid. However, if your immunity is weak, you might get an infection of the lungs by inhaling it. A strong immune system works with its mechanism of not getting affected by the fungal infection. But if your immune system is not strong, it can be dangerous. If you are under medication or hospitalized or suffer from HIV/AIDS your immunity is weak and you can catch the infection easily.
