We've seen a lot of people around the office and around town who have been complaining about allergies bothering them saying it's worse this year.  Guess what? It might not be allergies it could be a virus!

Dr. Scott Woods said a respiratory virus could be causing a lot of people's troubles and making them think it's just allergies.

Most viruses start with a fever which is a big sign you need to go to the doctor, but experts warn this new one isn't doing that. This is a huge problem because people who just think they have allergies will take their allergy medication and then go about their day exposing family members, coworkers and everyone else in their lives helping spread the virus.

Anyone with a lingering cough should go into see a medical expert to see if they have a virus or if it's just allergies!
