  • Could be allergies. My daughter had a "cold" for months .. they treated w/antibiotics that didn't work. Finally took her to a specialist who said it was really bad allergies. He put her on steroids to get it back under control (the antibiotics were pointless).

  • Allergies would be my guess. It is that time of year and allergy symptoms are commonly mistaken for cold symptoms. A lot of people think because they've never had issues with allergies before that it means they never will. That really isn't the case. Allergies can develop at any time in your life. I'd try taking some allergy medicine for 2 or 3 days and see if that clears it up.
