Cold or Allergies?

my 4 year old woke up this morning with a runny but stuffy nose, sneezing, itchy watery eyes, sore throat, coughing, achy all over and just down right miserable.

Could it be allergies or something more, and what should I do?

I don't have a car or any means of getting him to the doctor.

  • Itchy watery eyes makes it sound like allergies, but achy all over generally doesn't happen with allergies. Does he have a fever? Maybe you can call his doctor and see if they can suggest a treatment over the phone. Do you have a way of getting medication if the doctor suggested something you don't have?
