Difference between Nasal Allergy and Common cold

A common mistake that we usually make is to confuse allergy symptoms with that of cold, but these are two distinct conditions. Nasal allergy symptoms begin only on contact with allergens.

In contrast, common cold, takes a few days to appear after the virus has infected your body. The symptoms appear slowly. Cold is also often accompanied with bodyache or fever. More importantly, cold is contagious while an allergy isn’t.
