(HealthDay News) -- It may be difficult to tell if your child's sniffles are caused by the common cold or seasonal allergies.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers these telltale signs of seasonal allergies:

  • Persistent symptoms including red and watery eyes, sneezing and runny nose that last for weeks at a time, and seem to emerge at the same time each year.
  • A tingling or itching feeling in the mouth or throat.
  • A scaly red rash in the skin creases, ankles or wrists.
  • If your child has the skin condition eczema, he or she is more likely to develop seasonal allergies.
