How can I tell the difference between nasal allergy and sinusitis

Associated symptoms: Persons with nasal allergy typically have congestion, clear nasal discharge, itchy and watery eyes. If symptoms last more than one week, a viral cold is unlikely.

Many allergic symptoms are seasonal, but not pet or dust mite allergy. ...Read more
