Blowing your Nose

An easy way to tell the difference between a cold and flu is to look at your mucus colour. This is not everyone’s favourite way of telling, but it is an easy way to tell. Simplemost indicate that if you have discoloured mucus then you are likely to have a cold.

Examine your Eyes

By ordering a sensitivity test from Allergy Test Australia, you are able to identify which items are causing your issues.
