Allergic Rhinitis

It is a general term used for nasal congestion, sneezing and a running nose due to allergies. This may be a seasonal problem as with hay fever or it may be a perennial problem caused by other allergens, such as house dust, animal dander and even some foods. Frequently, this problem gets complicated by “sinusitis” and patients with constant nasal symptoms should have an allergy evaluation.
