6abc Action News spoke with Philadelphia area Otolaryngologist, Paul B. Swanson, MD to discuss the similarities and differences between COVID-19 and seasonal allergies. While they have many symptoms in common, there are a few symptoms that stand out as COVID-19 (fever and chills, muscle and body aches, new loss of taste and smell, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea).
The best way to determine a diagnosis is to schedule an appointment with an Ear, Nose, and Throat Physician (ENT) or a qualified healthcare provider. They will be able to access your symptoms and determine a treatment plan that’s right for you!
Dr. Paul Swanson specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of adult and pediatric ear, nose, throat, and allergy disorders, including Sublingual Allergy Therapy Treatment (Allergy Drops). Allergy Drops are an allergy serum created specifically for YOU to alleviate YOUR specific symptoms and treat YOUR allergy. It is the only known treatment that modifies the immune response and treats the cause rather than the symptoms. The drops are easy to use in the comfort of your home or anywhere you desire.
