The Doctor Is In: Do you have Allergies or the Common Cold?

Sneezing, coughing and that itchy feeling in your eyes may have you think you have allergies, but it may be the common cold.

Dr. Cristin Newkirk-Thompson of Marshfield Clinic stopped by Sunrise 7 Thursday morning as part of Sunrise 7's new weekly segment "The Doctor is in" to help us distinguish between the two types of symptoms when we're transitioning to spring.

NewsChannel 7 is pairing up with Marshfield Clinic each Thursday to talk about topics that can help you keep your family healthy.

"The Doctor is in" will air every Thursday on Sunrise 7.
