I feel like we’ve been sick forever. What I think is allergies turns up being a virus and with such a mild winter I have a hard time telling between the two. I know I’m not alone, all my friends have complained all season about their allergies, too. So with our sponsors at Rapid Urgent Care we are going to help you figure out if it’s an allergy or a virus.
Colds / Viruses
- Last 10-14 days
- Fever with hot flashes and chills
- Body aches, it feels like you’ve been run over by a truck.
- Green and dark yellow mucus
- Congestion mixed with bad breath.
- Cough with anything else on this list
- Usually happen in the winter but can happen all year-long
- Last for weeks and months
- Usually don’t have fever or body aches with allergies
- Clear or light yellow mucus
- Itchy ears and eyes
- Scratchy throat
- Happen all year-long
