Runny Nose, Sneezing, Wheezing and Water Eyes….
Is it a cold or and allergy? Our helpful team can help you feel better fast and get you back on schedule.
Colds: There are hundreds of different viruses that can cause a cold. The symptoms of a cold include congestion and coughing. Colds are contagious and the germs are spread through sneezing, coughing, or touching a person with a cold virus – such as shaking hands. An antibiotic such as penicillin or a Z-pack will not cure a cold.
Allergies: Are caused by an overactive immune system. For reasons scientists are still trying to understand, your body attacks harmless substances like dust or pollen and treats them like a germ. A chemical such as histamine is released. It can cause common allergy symptoms such as swelling in your nasal passages, a runny nose, coughing, and sneezing. Allergies are not contagious.
Common allergy symptoms:
- Runny nose
- Watery eyes
- Itchy nose, eyes and roof of mouth
- Stuffy nose
- Pressure in the nose and cheeks
- Ear fullness and popping
- Dark circles under the eyes
Walk-ins are welcome, no appointment is needed.
