Finding out if it is cold or allergies for your child

This happens every year with my little one, trying to decide whether or not they are suffering from a cold or allergies. This took me a while to figure out because as with any new mom, we panic and think the worst. As years go by and with the pediatricians help, we have almost figured out what the symptoms, although very similar, for each are. Allergies usually includes the watery eyes, itchy ears and the stuffed nose, it also helps to know if there is a history of allergies that runs in the family and the time of year as well. The cold and allergy-like symptoms usually lasts a few days and if you notice things such as a high fever, sore throat and fatigue, it is time to call your pediatrician and make an appointment.
