23 Jul Is it a cold or an allergy?
The symptoms of allergies can be very similar to those of a cold but there are some differences.
Both allergies and colds cause a blocked nose, runny nose, sneezing, and/or a cough.
Seasonal allergies may cause itchiness of the nose, roof of the mouth, back of the throat and eyes, however, a cold does not. A cold may cause body aches, fever and a sore throat, however, an allergy does not.22
