What Ails You: Cold, Flu, or Something Else?
Key symptom: Itchiness (eyes, nose, and throat)
Best fix: Antihistamines or a neti pot
Allergies are less troublesome in winter than spring and fall, but if you’re sneezy, itchy, and runny, you may be having an attack. It’s smart to keep on hand the allergy meds that work best for you, no matter the season. If you have chronic irritation, try a neti pot, a teapot-like tool that irrigates your sinuses and removes offenders, or a saline nasal spray.
