In brief: Need more informatio

Need more information, such as when the symptoms started, how long they have been going on for, whether it is only this time of the year, any other sick contacts in the home or school, fevers, etc.
Please have your child's doctor evaluate and suggest further.

I agree with Dr. Patel. Allergy symptoms typically are longer lasting and not associated with fever. Colds will resolve after 5-10 days. It's even possible that a person could have both at the same time.
