Understand The Difference Between Allergies And Cold

I have severe allergies but I can’t tell…I have been take my allergy meds and they are not helping. I have also been taking OTC meds like Zyrtec and Claritin. I have also been taking Nyquil/Dayquil and that seems to be doing the trick. How can you tell the difference?

To answer your query, you have colds if your rashes and difficulty breathing are gone after your cold are gone. However, if your skin redness and asthma are still there after your colds have gone, then you might have allergies. It’s better to consult a physician right away if you feel that you’re an allergy sufferer. It’s better to have yourself get checked before it’s too late because your situation can get worsen. For additional information about your condition, I have attached several articles below in the form of links.

    Most of the time, colds make you sore, achey, and tired. But allergy meds can make you tired too. And a lot of the symptoms are the same. Allergies can give you sinus problems (sneezing, etc), headaches, a sore throat, a cough and even skin rashes, so it can be hard to tell. But the thing about colds is that they go away. My advice is to wait a week. If it's a cold, it will most likely be gone by then. If your symptoms remain, then you might want to see a doctor and get an allergy med prescription.
