Dr. Wes Sublett spoke with WLKY over skype about the difference between the allergies and COVID-19. Pollen is blooming in our communities and causing many to have congestion, sneezing, runny nose, coughing, and other symptoms of allergies. While some of these overlap with COVID-19, the main difference is fever, allergies do not typically cause a fever. Asthma is another condition that has similar symptoms, including shortness of breath and coughing. Unfortunately, allergies are one of the main triggers of asthma, making this difficult time even more difficult.
Our offices are still open for appointments, and for allergy shots, if you are struggling, we have options for you to help control your symptoms.
