I get a fever with allergies. A head cold screams head cold to me -when I have one there's no doubt (meaning I know it when I feel it and don't question).
I'm never sure if allergies are flu or allergies until I take allergy meds and I improve. Takes 2-3 days, improving each day. Flu would only get worse.
I always get hit at least once each winter with allergies I think is flu - I have cedar/juniper issues and Dec/Jan is when they start up, during flu season.
This is a bad allergy spring. I'm on meds daily. Last year it was every other day.
