Abstract

When someone has the sniffles, others often assume that they have a cold and are contagious. Although those suffering from congestion, runny nose, sneezing, and coughing may be suffering from a cold, these are also signs of allergies. Colds generally occur during the colder months of the year, but can occur at any time. When the sniffles occur in summer, they are more likely to be due to allergic rhinitis, which is also known as hay fever.
