Q: How can I tell if I have a cold or an allergy?
A: Allergies are more common after exposure to certain environments, such as spring pollens, cats, or dust. You can suffer from sneezing, watery, itchy, runny eyes, or nasal congestion. Colds usually progress and improve over a course of 3-5 days, typically with fever, chills, aches, headache and a runny nose.
