While it may feel like time is standing still right now in this moment of unprecedented global crisis, the world is still turning. And that means spring is here. Flowers and trees are blooming, the weather is warming up... Oh, and spring allergies are in full swing!
Doctors’ phones have been ringing off the hook with patients afraid they might be coming down with the coronavirus, only for many to discover it's nothing more than their seasonal allergies returning. So how can you tell the difference between the coronavirus and seasonal allergies? Start with symptoms: coronavirus usually includes fever, difficulty breathing, and fatigue. Sneezing and scratchy, watery eyes are more likely allergies.
If you have concerns about your health or symptoms, you should call your doctor or health care provider immediately.
