Allergies? Or just a cold??

Sniffling, sneezing, coughing...is it allergies?  Or is it a cold virus??

Sometimes it can be difficult to distinguish between allergies and a simple cold, or upper respiratory infection.  Both can cause sneezing, congestion, runny nose, irritated red eyes, and cough.  Typically, colds only last 5-7 days and will not improve with allergy medications.  And fevers are almost never present with allergies.  So, if you do have symptoms that could be either, trying allergy treatment is a good way to distinguish between the two.  

Happy spring!
