Is it allergies or a cold that is making me feel bad?


That depends on a few things. Have you been around people with strong perfumes, smoke, cleaning products or other irritants? These things will make your nose run because you are allergic or you just may have a cold/flu. Before you head to the doctor ask yourself a few questions first. This way you can give the doctor a better idea of what is going on.
