Side by side COVID-19 vs. Allergies

This list does not include all possible symptoms. CDC will continue to update this list as we learn more about COVID-19.1

Allergies may present themselves differently in children.

Children tend to be more restless, while adults become more fatigued. If a child shows allergy symptoms while lethargic, feverish with a cough and no itchy eyes & runny nose, then speak to a pediatrician.2

Things to remember with Allergies

  • If you are using inhalers in public, take extra precautions to keep your distance.
  • Keep your house clean of allergens and change when coming home after being outdoors to stay free of allergic reactions & steer clear of confusing symptoms!
  • Having allergies or taking immunotherapy doesn’t mean it disqualifies you from the COVID-19 vaccine. Discuss with your allergist for further details.
