Health Corner with Nurse Nikki- Allergies or the Common Cold?


With the fall season upon us, there are many things circulating in our environment and it is sometimes hard to tell if someone is experiencing a cold or an allergy flare-up. Here are some ways to tell which you may be experiencing:


*With allergies, your mucus is clear or watery and it will stay clear, instead of becoming thick or discolored like it can with a cold.


*With allergies, your eyes are itchy or watery. It is rare to have itchy eyes when you have a cold.


*With allergies, your symptoms stay the same. With a cold, your symptoms change every few days. You may start out with a fever and stuffy nose, then have a sore throat for a few days, or get a cough or sinus pain before getting better.


*With allergies, you may have sniffles for more than a week. A cold usually clears up in 7 to 10 days, but allergies can last several weeks or longer.


* Common cold symptoms are a cough, low grade fever, headache, or body aches. These do not typically present with allergies. There are more than 200 cold viruses, and different viruses cause different symptoms.


So how can you feel better if experiencing a cold or allergies symptoms? It is best to reach out to your healthcare provider for the best treatment options but typically you can treat a common cold with an increase in fluids, rest, pain relievers and cold remedies, such as decongestants. You can treat seasonal allergies with antihistamines, nasal steroid sprays and decongestants.
