Is it a cold or is it allergies? Sometimes it is difficult to distinguish between the two as some symptoms are common in both. Common symptoms can include sneezing, runny nose, congestion, watery eyes and even fatigue. Symptoms not related to allergies may also include a fever and aches and pains. A cold will usually last no longer than ten days, whereas allergies can last for months and are often seasonal. Treatment for allergies can include several different approaches such as environmental controls, medications and/or allergy injections. Environmental controls include vacuuming and damp dusting weekly, washing bedding weekly in hot water, bathing and washing hair after being outdoors. Medications include antihistamines, decongestants or nasal steroid sprays. Allergy injections consist of injecting a small amount of the allergen responsible for your symptoms into your body at regularly scheduled intervals. Dosages are gradually increased over time, and eventually the body should build up a tolerance to the offending allergy trigger, providing a long-term solution for many allergy sufferers who would otherwise have no option but to put up with allergy symptoms. If you think it’s allergies, call us to schedule with one of our physicians.
