Allergic Rhinitis

Allergic Rhinitis, also known as allergies or hay fever, occurs when an individual is allergic to certain air particles or allergens. The inhaled allergens cause an inflammation in the nasal airways. The individuals immune system targets the allergens or particles that enter the body and attacks them, resulting in certain symptoms. When the immune system attacks the allergens, it releases histamines, causing the allergy symptoms. Symptoms include sneezing, runny nose, and watery eyes. Allergies can occur at different times throughout the year and effect everyone differently. They can also lead to sinusitis or sinus infections and ear infections. Allergic rhinitis is fairly common.

There is a blood test known as RAST blood test, that can also be used to determine if an individual is suffering from allergic rhinitis.

  • Skin Tests: patch, scratch, intradermal tests
  • RAST Blood Test
