Allergic Rhinitis

Nasal allergies

Allergic Rhinitis is an inflammation of the mucous membranes of the nose. Symptoms include sneezing, congestion, runny nose, itchy nose, throat, eyes and ears, and watery eyes.

Allergic rhinitis occurs when symptoms are triggered by something you are allergic to. This can either seasonal (as with oak or cedar fever) or from exposure all year long to allergens like dust mites, pet dander, cockroaches, and mold.

Non-allergic rhinitis looks just like allergic rhinitis, but is caused by other exposures like smoke, dust, strong scents, and even weather changes (things that are NOT allergens like the ones listed above). It therefore tends to be slightly more challenging to treat.
