Less colds & stomach viruses

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - Could we be moving into a new phase? Out with the flus and colds and in with the allergies?

Dr. William Ferrar breaks down how you can tell the difference.

He is seeing fewer and fewer colds and stomach viruses and more allergy symptoms with sneezing and itching rather than chills or sweats

To prevent allergies, stay indoors with windows shut, use a saline nasal rinse at end of day.

Otherwise, use non sedating types of antihistamines.
