You’re feeling pretty lousy. You’ve got sniffles, sneezing, and a sore throat. Is it COVID-19, a cold, flu, or allergies? It can be hard to tell them apart because they share so many symptoms. But understanding the differences will help you choose the best treatment. If you suspect you may have COVID-19, get yourself tested as soon as possible.
*Information is still evolving.
**Allergies, colds and flus can trigger asthma, which can lead to shortness of breath. COVID-19 is the only one linked to shortness of breath on its own.
