Dr. Larry Marcus answered

Allergies: All of the symptoms you describe sound allergic. If you develop a cough with mucus, a sore throat, and/or a low grade fever - that would be more like a cold. The best way to distinguish would be to see an ENT physician - the appearance inside the nose of an allergic patient is very unique.
