Are you suffering from seasonal allergies? Are you WONDERING if you have seasonal allergies or if it could be a virus like the cold, flu, or COVID-19?

While it is tricky to tell, sometimes, there are key differences.

The American Academy of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology and the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America have created a chart that can help you differentiate and assess your symptoms.

The most common allergy symptoms include congestion, runny nose, itchy eyes, and sneezing. If you are experiencing a loss of taste or smell – that’s most common with COVID-19, but sometimes occurs with allergies and the common cold.

A fever is most common in the flu virus and accompanied by symptoms such as muscle aches and a cough.

While you can’t diagnose yourself with a blog or a chart, you can rest assured that your providers at NorthShore Health Centers are ready to help you decipher your symptoms and get you on a path to feeling better.
