Winter Allergies Directory
Winter allergies can mimic colds -- with symptoms such as runny nose, itchy eyes, and itchy throat. But symptoms tend to persist for weeks, and winter allergies don't produce chills and body aches. People with warm-weather allergies tend to have cold-weather allergies, too, but when indoors with the windows closed, exposure to mold and mildew and pet dander intensifies.
