Cough, Cold & Allergy

Respiratory tract infections are among the most important human health problems because of their high incidence and economic costs. Cough, Cold, and allergy all affect your respiratory system, which can make it hard to breathe.

Cold and allergy have a number of overlapping symptoms, including runny nose, congestion and cough. These symptoms can indicate different issues that require different intervention.

In addition the time of year can provide a clue as to whether one is experiencing a cold or allergies, as colds are most frequent in the winter. Allergies can occur any time of year, but they are often specific to the time of year when specific allergens are in season.

Understanding the differences will help you choose the best treatment and exclude overlap of different therapies.
