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.

hello. i have no idea if i have a cold or flu or what. i was looking online but they say a cold you would have a runny nose. i do not but my nose is a little plugged [i can still breathe..and i thinks its been like this before..i dont think its allergies because i am not sneezing] i was coughing (it's getting a little better). i do not have a headache or puffy eyes. i started feeling bad (sore throat- it hurt to talk and swollow) maybe on the 19th or 18th [every so often coughing really bad as well] and i have been taking plenty of Airborne. Today my throat does not hurt when i speak (it doesnt hurt when i swollow..it just feels odd) and i have not been coughing as much (maybe 1/2 or 1/4 of what i was coughing like]. Is this a cold or flu or what? and is it contagious [still? how would i know if it was] ? i do not want to get my family sick and i would like to haang out with a friend this weekend.
