Patient :I got a slightly sore throat a little less than a week ago. It progressed to small coughing here and there, and my nose was a little stuffy. I assume it's a cold, but my symptoms are much weaker than they are normally, and I've gotten a constant tickle in my throat that keeps me up all night coughing. There has been a lot of sneezing as well. I haven't had any issues with allergies thus far but my father does have allergies. Is this just a cold that will pass, or do I have allergies.
