Allergic Rhinitis

 

Allergic rhinitis (AR) is a non-infectious nasal mucous disorder which typically develops under the combined impacts of gene and environments. Such disease takes place among people of different ages. Once a potential patient gets exposed to a particular IgE, this disease has a chance to develop.

 

Symptoms

Typical symptoms of this disease are paroxysmal sneezing, runny nose, stuffy nose and itching nose, while some patients may also experience a impaired smelling sense. Major symptoms include:

 

Paroxysmal sneezing, usually more than 3 times on a daily basis.

Runny nose: larger amount of clear nasal mucus.

Stuffy nose: episodic or consecutive nasal obstruction.

Paroxysmal sneezing, usually more than 3 times on a daily basis.

Itching nose

 

Causes

Gene and environment are considered as the two primary agents for AR. Patients develop this disease duel to a frequent contact with allergens in the air. This disease has two major types, seasonal AR and perennial AR. The former is brought about by plant pollen or fungi spore, while the later can be caused by dust mites or animal dander.

 

• Genetic inheritance: research has shown that AR runs in family.

• Exposure to allergens: allergens are antigens that induce and react with specific IgE antibodies. They are often derived from animals, plants, insects or fungi. Allergens are divided into inhaled allergens and food allergens, among which the inhaled allergen is the primary cause for AR.  

 

Diagnosis

Diagnosis can be made if the patients show more than two of the above-mentioned symptoms, plus the symptoms last for over 1 hour in a day. Other AR indicators include discomforts in the eyes, such as itching and conjunctiva congestion, etc., as well as nasal signs like whitened nasal mucosa, edema and water-liked secretion from the nasal cavity. Patients having asthma should undergone thorough examination since asthma patients often time has allergic rhinitis.

 

Treatment options

Traditionally, treatment methods for AR include medication therapy, as well as immunotherapy and surgical solutions. When dealing with severe AR which results in accompanying symptoms like chronic nasal congestion and hyperthrophic inferior nasal turbinate, proper surgical treatment should be conducted as earlier as possible.
