Know the Difference

Description: 
It’s pretty easy to confuse allergy symptoms with cold symptoms. Figure out which it is so you can get the right relief.

Description: 

Question 1:

How long have you been experiencing symptoms?

Colds usually last 3 to 14 days. Allergies can hang around for months if you don’t reduce your exposure to what’s triggering them.

Question 2:

How are your eyes?

Colds rarely bother your eyes, but allergies love making your eyes watery and itchy.

Question 3:

Are you having aches and pains?

If you’re experiencing aches and pains, you probably have a cold. Colds usually travel with general aches and pains. Allergies do not.

Question 4:

Do you have a fever?

If you have a fever, you have a cold. Allergies do not cause a fever.
