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.

  • Probably allergies.

    Mine passed all allergy tests but still has this in the spring and fall. I just get some allergy meds and give until summer and then in the fall until the first frost.

  • If the runny nose and watery eyes are clearer....then it is allergies. Once it starts looking more green...infection. Also...with infection there is always a fever. Try an allergy medicine it will at least relieve some of the symptoms. :)
