When your child is sniffling and sneezing, are allergies or a cold to blame? The best way to get an accurate diagnosis is to visit a pediatric urgent care center, but there are some clues that can help you figure out what is affecting your child.
Watch this video to learn about the symptoms that differentiate colds and allergies. Cold symptoms tend to develop gradually and persist for about a week. Allergy symptoms begin suddenly and can last for several weeks, or until the allergen is removed.
