Yes, absolutely you can be allergic to mold, and this can be felt in your eyes, nose, lungs, skin, etc. Allergens (such as mold) can certainly trigger eczema (an allergic reaction in the skin), it can trigger/worsen asthma and other respiratory conditions.

What type of mold is in your house? Are you able to call a professional to remove the mold, as some types are EXTREMELY dangerous to inhale.
