Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question on Healthcare Magic.
I can understand your concern.
Viral infection (influenza virus) and allergy can start with eye symptoms and also progress to upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) like sore throat, dry cough, throat irritation, mild fever etc.
So please let me know if you are having allergy in the past.
I will be happy to help you further. Wish you good health. Thanks.
