Cold or allergies?

I cant tell which it is.. the day before yesterday my throat started feeling a bit sore around the evening..then the next day it felt worse, I was soo congested more in my head and the back of my throat if that makes sense.. I feel sinus pressure too..Ive only sneezed a couple of time in the last 2 days, my eyes are a bit watery.. Also I feel super run down today but I think thats because I downed a bunch of benadryl last night to help me sleep since I havent been sleeping with lately and the sore throat wasnt helping, today the sore throat is barely there but im having a bit of mucus drainage in the back of my throat.. So it is a cold or allergies?

  • Whew same for me!! I've never had allergies, but man I'm starting to think otherwise. So I'm not helping much am I lol. I don't know which it is. And my poor baby girl has the cough too.

  • generic Zyrtec or claritin will work longer than benadryl it sounds more like allergies
