SAN ANTONIO- If you are sniffling a lot right now, mountain cedar might just be the culprit.

The season lasts until about February. Doctors are reminding you to monitor how you are feeling and they have one way you can tell COVID and allergies symptoms apart.

“If you have a fever, that’s pretty much a tell tell sign that it’s not allergies. Allergies do not give you a fever, so if you have a fever you should really be thinking this may be COVID or another virus. If there is a lot of itching: itchy noise, itchy eyes, that’s very commonly associated with allergies,” said Dr. Erika Gonzales of Staamp Allergy.
