Allergies: Seasonal allergies can present with symptoms of congestion, sneezing, runny nose, itchy eyes. Spring time in the north east can be problematic for seasonal allergy sufferers. Upper respiratory infections (the common cold) and sinus infections present differently, usually involve a fever and a general feeling of unwell versus seasonal allergies which cause congestion in otherwise well patients.
