allergy-causeThere are a host of health-related symptoms and illnesses which are attributed to allergies when they are actually caused by a viral or bacterial infection. We have assembled the following table to help you determine whether or not your health symptoms may be allergies or is in fact more related to a viral or bacterial issue.

A central question is important to each of these complaints: Is it caused by a virus, bacteria or an allergic reaction? In general, the doctor has more effective treatments than is available at home for a bacterial infection. Remember that viral or allergies do not improve with treatments by penicillin or other antibiotics. To demand a “penicillin shot” for a cold or allergy is asking for a drug reaction such as a more serious “superinfection” and is actually a waste of time and money.

Keep in mind that factors other than diseases may cause or contribute to upper respiratory symptoms. Smoking accounts for a large number of coughs and sore throats. Pollution (smog) can produce the same problems.
