Common Questions and Answers about Seasonal allergies vs cold


7406493 tn?1453999212 I suffer from seasonal allergies as well but unfortunately there is nothing that we can do about it cause the medicine that I would normally take is not recommended for pregnancy.
689528 tn?1364135841 My son has seasonal allergies as well. I do go ahead and give him over the counter children's clariten (these grape flavored, chewable tabs) which makes it all better. I've never noticed a side effect. We started when he was 4 with that after an issue due to his allergies became a problem. The 'itching' was causing him to itch his nose and he aggrevated the 'turbinates' in his nose which began bleeding.
Avatar f tn The timing sounds right for seasonal allergies in most locales too. I would also recommend treating it like allergies and seeing if it gets any better. I've had seasonal allergies my whole life and I have definitely become sore in my chest and abdomen from sneezing/coughing. If allergy treatments don't work, you can also try a humidifier. Like mentioned, stuffy noses are common during pregnancy, and the coughing could be from the air in your home being very dry.
Avatar m tn Cold is not usually associated with all you listed out. Though it comes with cold or winter season often or with somebody that responds to change of temperature readily. All the things you said shows more of allergy, it now depends on if you have a family history of such or is just occuring to you.
Avatar n tn Hi. I've never suffered from allergies before and I'm 19. From late November onward I started suffering from severly itchy eyes which turn red. Then over the course of the next weeks it would be accompanied with sneezing, itchy throat and runny nose. I know it can't be a cold because it comes and goes during the day and I've had it for almost 2 to 3 months now. Could I be suffering from seasonal allergies?
620048 tn?1358018235 I do not believe that MS would cause your allergies to be any worse. I understand that if one has allergies they may get worse with age and in some cases go away altogether. This year in particular, seems to have shown an increase in people's allergies. You are not along. Where I am in Virginia, the seasons seem a little mixed up, with it being hot as the dickens when we aren't in that season or it's been cold when it should be warm. We even had some snow here in April.
Avatar m tn I don't know how many of you are battling or do battle seasonal allergies but I am having a hell of a go with them this year. Normally, all of my allergies affect my respiratory system. This year, not so much. My right eye feels like I walk on it.... Man, can't wait for this to be over.
Avatar m tn Several thoughts. It is possible to have allergies all year long. There are in door allergens that can be the problem. Or you could be like me and experience year long "seasonal" allergies. I am litterally allergy to some pollen in every month. Many people don't realize that there are plants that pollenate in the winter months. Do want you can to avoid indoor allergens from pets, dust, and vermin (mice and cockroaches). Keep pets out of your bedroom.
Avatar f tn Because they are seasonal I would be inclined to think they may be allergen related. I would see a physician that specializes in allergies. I have tons of allergies, some are seasonal and produce headaches. My sinuses react to so many things. Why you seem to get better after a nap is puzzling but it may be because you are removing yourself from whatever is triggering your allergic response. Obviously I am not a physician and I am only basing my response on personal experience.
2169449 tn?1358489923 I take Zyrtec 10 mg tablet daily im allergic to my cat/ seasonal allergies etc.
Avatar m tn It most definitely could be allergy related. Allergies can cause the sinuses to swell and therefore cause some inner ear disturbance, which can/will cause dizziness. As it seems to happen at the same time of year, I would think that this may be a definite possibility.
Avatar n tn Hello. I have been suffering from the worst seasonal allergies in my life this year. I have itchy watery eyes, nasal congestion, and scratchy throat. I haven't been sleeping well at night for the past 3 weeks because of the nasal congestion and have been waking up with a nasty dry mouth in the morning. I have tried benadryl, claritin 24 hrs tablets, zyrtec (also 24 hr tablet), nasal spray (some kind of anticholinergic solution), Singulair and phenylephrine so far.
Avatar n tn Yes allergies can also bring on the symptoms you are describing. If you are finding your seasonal allergies rather bothersome, then perhaps you should consider allergy shots as a part of your treatment plan. It is an excellent way to desensitize your immune system and as a result you can experience little or no symptoms. About 75% of people get relief from allergy shots. I found it worked excellent on my daughter's airborn allergies.
1232362 tn?1333135406 Do kitties get seasonal allergies? Our older Spirit (about 12ish, spayed) has been sneezing clear mucus, has bright clear eyes, good appetite, normal behavior (wants to play and does her pm yodeling and such) but this has lasted a good week now. She seems completely fine except for the sneezing and snotting. Could it just be some sort of allergies? We're using the same litter, same food, same same same.
Avatar f tn When this started, I had just returned home from college for the summer and then a week later the symptoms appeared. I have always had really bad seasonal allergies and spring was often a terrible time for me but this is the first year I have had these type of symptoms. My other symptoms include: sinus pressure in my nose and head, very dry sinuses, and a popping in my ears after using the neti pot and trying to blow my nose.
Avatar f tn m not taking anything until I talk to my doctor at my next appointment, which is tomorrow thank goodness, but I was just wondering what you ladies take for seasonal allergies? I remember my ob with mylast child said it was safe to take anything but Allegra, but I'd still like to know what other mommies to be are taking for allergy relief. Thanks!
Avatar m tn During pregnancy, your veins swell making it seem like you have really bad allergies or a cold... I have been dealing with this for about 6 weeks now and have been told it won't go away until after I deliver. You could ask your doctor what types of medication could help, unfortunately for me though I have tried everything and nothing works.
Avatar f tn I have seasonal allergies and every year i always sneeze like crazy and my eyes get itchy and sometimes swell. The only things i have ever taken for this is benedryl or claritin . Right now the pollen is high and i just woke up in a sneezing fit and my eyes are crazy itchy. I dont know what to do about this. I feel helpless. Is there anything i can do for allergies?
Avatar f tn Has anyone else experienced an increase in seasonal allergies during tx. Mine seem so much worse this year, can't stop sneezing, head stufferd up and I feel weirder than usual! Claritin used to help but not this year. Should I go see the Doc. maybe there is something stronger. Has anyone heard of a better OTC medication?

Avatar m tn Hi, The nasal congestion could be because of allergic rhinitis (due to seasonal changes, pollen, etc) or viral infection (common cold, of different severity depending on type of virus). With regard to your concerns: 1. you can check if he has a sinus infection by asking him to bend and touch the floor with his hands and ask him if he feels any heaviness or increased headache as he straightens up slowly.
Avatar f tn I have considered seasonal allergies as my middle son also struggles with seasonal allergies as does my husband. Her ped does not seem too concerned as she is otherwise playful, eating, drinking, peeing, etc. Thanks for any input!
Avatar m tn Oh and I said seasons but it really more when it goes from hot to cold or cold to hot
Avatar f tn thanks and yea i do have seasonal allergies and my dr gave me meds for the migraines but yea ill just let my dr know when i got in a couple days..
Avatar f tn I do have like seasonal allergies, but so far this season they haven't been too bad. Yesterday I noticed my eye was just pouring out tears. I wasn't crying, it doesn't hurt or itch though. I don't know if this could be a possible allergy? I took some clariton D this morning and put some eye drops in but nothing helped...
Avatar f tn Where the ear connects to the head will be warm (or hot) indicating a fever? Thanks for the tip. My dog (Harley) has allergies, like I mentioned, and they are aggravating to me and her! She chews at herself. The vet had to give her a cortizone shot a couple of months ago. Her allergies seem to be seasonal. She doesn't seem to be bothered too much right now. I give her benadryl when she starts chewing at herself. Thanks, again!!!!
Avatar m tn For a cold, I take Nyquil which also seem to give me some relief. I often wonder if PVCs are not somehow connected to allergies of some kind. I don't's mystery to everyone I guess. I think I just have to keep reminding myself over and over again that I'm not going to die from these and that there are other people out there suffering from much worse things. I'll be praying for all of you because I know exactly what you are going through.
