Allergic Rhinitis are allergies that affect the nose.
Types of Allergic Rhinitis
Common symptoms include nasal congestion, sneezing, watering eyes, itching, headaches, sore throat, loss of senses and cough.
Avoidance of triggers is the best treatment against allergic rhinitis. However, avoiding triggers may be impossible so doctors recommend antihistamines and decongestant medications or immunotherapy (allergy shots). Skin testing can also help determine the treatment that is right for you.
