Allergic rhinitis symptoms, methods of diagnosis and treatment

Some people suffer from chronic allergic rhinitis, and are affected by allergic rhinitis triggers. In the article, learn about the different medical diagnosis methods and treatment methods according to the health condition and the specialist doctor’s diagnosis.

Nose allergy symptoms vary from one form to another and may be in the
form of 🔻
  • Itchy nose

  • Nasal obstruction

  • sneezing

  • Runny nose

  • sore throat

  • Itching, redness, watering of the eye (as it accompanies allergic rhinitis)

A person suffering from allergic rhinitis may be unintentionally exposed to various allergens. It is important to identify and avoid allergic rhinitis triggers as much as possible, as they may be in the form of 🔻

  • House dust mite

  • pollen

  • fungi

  • Animal dander (such as pets such as dogs and cats, and insects such as cockroaches)

Can allergic rhinitis be diagnosed? The answer is yes, so the specialist doctor can diagnose the patient's nose allergy in different ways, including 🔻

  • medical history

  • Measurement of antibodies to allergens in the nose

  • skin prick test

  • blood test

How can allergic rhinitis be treated? Treatment methods depend on the patient's condition and the specialist doctor's diagnosis. The doctor may resort to 🔻

1. Environmental therapy and patient education

Avoid allergens with specific measures, depending on the cause or triggers of allergic rhinitis

2. Immunotherapy

3. Pharmacotherapy

  • A corticosteroid nasal spray with or without an antihistamine in the inhaler

  • Leukotriene antibiotic tablets
