Is it a cold or allergies?

Symptoms of allergic rhinitis can be similar to that of the common cold - these include a runny or blocked nose, itching in the back of the throat or even a cough.


However, the conditions have quite different causes. Colds, as you will know, are caused by one of 100 types of viruses, whereas allergic rhinitis is an allergy to airborne particles around us such as house dust, animal fur, pollen (hayfever is a type of allergic rhinitis).
