Allergic reactions can also cause symptoms similar to those of common cold, such as sneezing, headache or sore throat. Indoor or outdoor allergens, like dust, pollen and pet hair, when inhaled, can also irritate the nasal passage (nose and throat), resulting in excess mucus production and a runny nose.
- Medicines called anti-histamines are prescribed to stop the allergic response.
- It is best to identify and limit your exposure to substances that trigger a reaction.
- Please consult a doctor if your symptoms get worse or you have difficulty in breathing.
