I woke up with a dry throat, now my nose is itchy & I am sneezing & have a headache. I have yellow mucus from my nose, is this a cold or allergies?
Allergies. Sounds like allergies. Spring allergies (tree) are blossoming right now. It could be an upper resp infection but your symptoms sound more allergic in nature.
I get allergies/cold in the end of August every year. It's itchiness in my nose and throat, sneezing bouts, runny nose, mucus. Pollen is low right now?
Molds? I assume that you live in the Northeast and for that area, ragweed is likely the cause. On the other hand, pollen count reflects only the exposure within a short distance from the counting station and thus may not actually reflect your own exposure. Other possibilities- Mold counts are also high in the fall (b) you may have become allergic to new allergens. Read more...

Headaches can of course occur in the same realm. You should see an allergist for sure. Read more...
