Two different ?: Allergy occurs when your genes interact with the environment. There is a strong hereditary component to it. Treatments include avoidance of allergens, medications, and /or allergy shots.
Cold is from exposure to a virus and one can minimize exposure by frequent hand washing and staying away from people with a cold. There is no specific Rx for it at this time.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
