Allergy Q & A

What is allergic rhinitis?

Allergic rhinitis is a condition that results from allergies to dust, mold, pollen, dander, pollution and other triggers, causing symptoms like runny nose, watery or itchy eyes, sneezing, wheezing and coughing.

How is allergic rhinitis treated?

Symptoms can usually be treated with nasal sprays or oral medications, but to help avoid recurrence, the cause of your allergy – the trigger – needs to be identified. In some cases, causes can be determined from information you provide about how and when symptoms first appeared. But in other cases, you may need skin testing or even blood work to zero-in on the culprit. Once the cause is identified, allergy shots may help you develop an immunity to avoid developing symptoms in the future.
