What are the symptoms?
A runny nose, an itchy nose, a stuffed-up nose and fits of sneezing are the most common nasal symptoms of allergies. Your eyes may become itchy and watery, as well.
Sounds like a cold. How do I know it isn't?
Typically colds bring with them fever, coughs and body aches. It's rare for allergies to produce those symptoms. Another clue: if your symptoms always appear about the same time of year and last about the same length of time, you probably have allergies and not a cold.
