Ep. 84 Allergic Rhinitis or COVID-19?

It can be hard telling the difference between allergy symptoms and a viral illness like COVID-19 because of overlapping symptoms. So I thought it would be helpful to invite Allergist,  Dr. Lakiea Wright to help tease it all out and to educate about allergic rhinitis/environment allergies which can be a problem year-round. She highlights the importance of recognizing allergies and managing them appropriately to improve quality of life. She says, “with allergies it takes a lot of energy out of you… so some kids can be fatigued.” If that’s your kid, listen up!

This episode covers:

  • What is allergic rhinitis(AR)
  • What are the symptoms of AR
  • How to tell the difference between AR and illnesses, such as COVID-19
  • Ways to prevent AR
  • How to treat AR
  • When its time to see an allergist

Thanks, Dr. Lakiea Wright, MD MAT MPH
