It’s that time of year; the time of year when I bust out my allergy medicine and make a nice little place for it right next to my bed so I don’t forget to take it EVERYDAY!
Obviously, this year there is more than usual to worry about when it comes to feeling off. Aside from allergies alone, the threat of being diagnosed with coronavirus is still very real, and for many of us who have started getting vaccinated, there are also side effects from that that may make you feel not your best.
So how do we tell if we should be seriously concerned about that little cough, or headache?
The NCDHHS just posted something very helpful on their Twitter that I thought I would share. It basically breaks down what symptoms to look for when you are starting to feel off to determine if it might be COVID, or just allergies.

Spring is just around the corner and some symptoms of allergies may be similar to COVID-19 symptoms. Learn to tell the difference as NC prepares for allergy season. 🤧 pic.twitter.com/ZVtTGGy675
The biggest symptoms to look out for are loss of taste or smell and fever; those symptoms will be a tell tale sign that you may have more than just your regular seasonal allergies.
And a good rule of thumb to always live by…
WHEN IN DOUBT, GET TESTED!
