Allergy or Cold? Or something else?

The symptoms of seasonal allergic reactions to airborne particle can sometimes mimic that of a cold. Below is a link to an information brochure that Walgreens has made available online, to give you more information about seasonal allergies.

In determining whether you have a cold or allergy, the gist of the matter is that if you have aches and pains, you may have a cold. Aches and pains aren’t common airborne allergy symptoms. However, the brochure also notes that a fever is NOT common for either ailment. If you have a fever, you may have the flu or other infection and should make an appointment with your doctor or, if you can’t be seen that day, go to one of the clinics located inside Walgreens or CVS stores.
