Is it allergies or a cold?

You may have a cold if:

  • Symptoms last all day long and are worse at morning and night
  • You begin to feel better after seven to 10 days
  • Your symptoms include fatigue, body aches, fever and a sore throat

You may have allergies if:

  • Symptoms include itchy eyes, rashes or wheezing
  • Symptoms last longer than 10 days (with no fever)
  • Mucus is clear
  • Symptoms worsen during certain times of year, after being outside or when leaving windows open
  • You notice “allergy shiners” (dark under eye circles)
