Is It a Common Cold or Allergies?

Colds and allergies have distinct causes and durations. Colds result from viral infections and last up to 14 days, with symptoms like coughing and congestion. Allergies stem from an overactive immune response to harmless substances like pollen or dust, causing symptoms such as sneezing and itchy eyes. Allergies can persist for days to months, depending on exposure to triggers, and are not contagious. Monitoring symptoms and duration can help differentiate between the two, with persistent symptoms beyond two weeks warranting a doctor's visit to rule out allergies or other issues.

What is a Normal Body Temperature and Symptoms of Fever?

People experience warmth in their bodies due to the rise in body temperature, which may be because of various reasons such as doing exercise, a rich diet, the mensuration cycle in women, exposure to the sun, being anxious and there are lot many. But these cannot be counted under the term fever, as the rise of temperature in the body is related to the speed of our heart. When the temperature of our body rises because of any disease or the WBC work in our body and is more than the normal temperature of the body it is called fever.

Fever and normal body temperature

The conventional understanding that the average human body temperature is 98.6°F is outdated, with newer research suggesting a broader normal range of 97°F to 99°F. Body temperature fluctuates throughout the day, typically lower in the morning and peaking in the late afternoon or evening. While regular temperature checks aren't necessary for healthy individuals, they are recommended when feeling unwell or suspecting exposure to illnesses like COVID-19, as fever is a common symptom. The historical basis of 98.6°F stems from Dr. Carl Wunderlich's 19th-century study, but recent investigations indicate a gradual decrease in average body temperatures to around 97.5°F. Factors contributing to this decline include lower metabolic rates due to increased body weight, reduced rates of infection compared to the 19th century, and advancements in thermometer accuracy.
