>SO WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN ALLERGY AND JUST A COLD?>RIGHT. SO THERE IS A TIME DIFFERENCE. AN ALLERGY TENDS TO BE PROLONGED, IT TENDS TO LAST A LOT MORE TIME. A COLD TENDS TO LAST A COUPLE OF WEEKS, APPROXIMATELY. YOU CAN GET OVER IT WITH SOME HYDRATION AND SOME WATER, SO THERE IS A TEMPORAL RELATION THERE. THERE IS ALSO A SYMPTOM>THAT WAS KIND OF CUTE, WASN’T IT? THE FEVER WAS A GOOD POINT. IF YOU HAVE A FEVER, YOU DO NOT HAVE ALLERGY.>OR AN INFECTIOUS COMPONENT TO THAT>ARE THERE MONTHS YOU ARE MORE PRONE TO ALLERGIES, SOME PEOPLE SAY THE SPRINGTIME, BECAUSE OF HOURS, APRIL. FLOWERS, APRIL.>IN THE SPRING WE HAVE FLOWERS, IN THE SUMMER, GRASSES, AND IN THE FALL WE HAVE THE WEEDS.>SO PEOPLE ARE MORE LIKELY TO SAY, HERE IT TUMS. HERE IT COMES. DOCTOR, HOW ARE ALLERGIES DIAGNOSED? I KNOW THERE ARE SKIN TESTS AND BLOOD TESTS.>WE CAN OFTEN TELL RIGHT AWAY THAT SOMEONE HAS ALLERGIES. YOU DO NOT NEED A TEST RIGHT AWAY TO DIAGNOSE ALLERGIES, YOU JUST NEED TO SAY YOU HAVE THESE SYMPTOMS, RASH, RUNNY NOSE, CONGESTION YOU HAVE ALLERGIES.
