Know the difference between Pollan Allergy/Hay fever and a cold - they are very similar

Spring is a wonderful time, but if you suffer from pollenallergy or hay fever, it can for sure bring certain challenges.

It’s common to mistake the symptoms of pollen allergy for those of a common cold because the body's reactions are strikingly similar: both pollen and viruses can cause inflammation leading to a runny nose, sneezing, and fatigue.

Differences between Pollen allergy and a cold

There are clear signs to help you determine what you're actually suffering from. Pollen allergy and Hay fever often causes prolonged discomfort that varies with the weather and wind, while a cold tends to be more short-lived and is often accompanied by a fever.

Clear signs of Pollen allergy and Hay fever:

  • Symptoms lasting for several weeks

  • Frequent sneezing, especially in bursts.

  • Itchy and red eyes.

  • Fatigue and a general feeling of being unwell.

  • Clear runny nose along with nasal congestion.

  • Feeling unwell.

  • Possible wheezing if the allergy also affects your airways.

To alleviate Pollen Allergy and Hay fever symptoms, you might explore methods like the CE method with hypnotherapy, which can reduce the body's allergic response, thus decreasing your need for medication and problems in spring and summer.

On the other hand, if you have a cold, you can often expect:

  • Symptoms that disappear after about a week.

  • Possible fever.

  • Sore throat.

  • Thick nasal discharge that may be yellowish in color.

  • Headache and feeling uncomfortable.

  • Feeling unwell.

To alleviate cold symptoms, it's best to rest and allow your body to fight the virus.

Vitamins, particularly various forms of Vitamin C, and zinc are known to be beneficial during this time to support the body's needs.

Remember to stay hydrated, especially if you have a fever. Some find relief for their throat with cold lemon water, others with cold peppermint tea, while some prefer warm beverages like tea, preferably with a slice of lemon.

Honey - Many may not know that the fantastic properties of honey can be lost when heated above 40 degrees Celsius.

Now that you've learned a bit about the differences, you'll know whether you have a cold or pollen allergy.
