042: Ah-choo! Is it coronavirus or just seasonal allergies?

Seasonal allergies can cause nasal congestion, a runny nose, sore throat, sinus pressure and headaches, and some fatigue, all of which can also be early symptoms of a virus, such as a cold, the flu, and the virus on everyone’s minds — COVID-19. But how do we tell if those sniffles and sneezes are normal allergies, or the beginnings of coronavirus? Dr. Oakley and Holly are joined by Dr. Perry Poteet, MD Otolaryngology, ENT & Allergy Specialists from Northern KY, who shares useful information about the physical signs and common symptoms that tell you it’s time to start looking for an ENT (Ear, Nose and Throat) doctor and sinus specialist. And what about Neti Pots – are they effective? The Lady Bod Podcast is presented by St. Elizabeth Healthcare and Physicians.
