Problem: Allergies or Asthma? I do not get what the difference is? Are they one and the same? Help, I'm very confused!
Solution submitted by "April" from Enid, OK: Allergy symptoms often include itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, runny, stuffy, or itchy nose. Children with allergies may snore, wake with sore throats, and often breathe through their mouths. Symptoms can be seasonal or year round, depending on what children are allergic to. Asthma attacks are often characterized by wheezing when breathing, coughing a lot or spitting up mucus. Sometimes a chronic dry cough may be the only symptom. Your best bet is to see your family physician to be sure of a correct diagnosis. Good luck!
