According to ABC News, allergies and colds share several symptoms, and it is easy to mistake one for the other. Both are often characterized by sneezing, as well as runny or stuffy noses. However, allergies will typically cause an individual to have itchy eyes and should not lead to things like a fever or general aches and pains. Those symptoms are indicative of a cold or flu, the news source reported.
