My eleven year old daughter sneezes and has a runny nose every time the AC kicks on at my parents condo here in Florida. The place has sat unused for a couple months. Someone had turned the humidistat off and I noticed mold on the gaskets on the refrigerator door. I ve noticed that the place was really humid when we got here so I turned the humidistat back on. It doesn t bother my wife or me and we both tend to occasionally have allergy problems. My daughter rarely does but there seems to be a direct correlation between the AC turning on and her sneezing and wiping her nose. Thinking back a week, she seemed to be getting a cold after we first arrived here for a day. We then drove up to Disney World for 4 nights and she was fine. We didn t think much of it since she has a history of catching what seem to be really definite colds, including fever, etc. but shaking them off in a day or so. At any rate, back here for our third day and I ve noticed this correlation. She has not tended to show allergic reactions before and has regular checkups. In fact, she was born with a large arachnoid cyst and had two shunts (CP and VP) placed as an infant. A couple revisions (6 months and 5 years old). So, we have monitored her pretty closely these 11 years and she has never really shown any allergic tendencies to this point.

Hi- This morning I woke up with a sore throat and runny nose. I also had a swollen gland on the right side of my neck under my jaw. It s not sore, and feels hard to touch. Also during the day the swelling goes down occasionally (after a saline gargle etc.). Should I be worried about these symptoms? Or is this just a simple common cold?
