COVID-19 vs. Allergies: What Is the Difference?
With the COVID-19 pandemic, it can be difficult to determine whether you might be infected with the coronavirus or it is just your allergies flaring up. Both conditions do share some similar symptoms like coughing and sneezing.
However, there are a few key differences between COVID-19 and allergies. For instance, a fever is typically common with COVID-19 and not allergies. Additionally, if you have flu-like symptoms such as chills, diarrhea, or nausea, you may have COVID-19.
Yet, it is important to remember that you could have allergies and COVID-19 simultaneously. In some instances, your COVID-19 symptoms could be asymptomatic, which means you will just be noticing allergy symptoms.
If you have been staying at home and no one in the home has left for 14 days, chances are you are suffering from allergies. If you are unsure, the best course of action is to contact your primary healthcare provider and schedule a COVID-19 test if necessary.
