What is Allergic Rhinitis?

Allergic rhinitis is known to many individuals as hay fever. Researchers claim that nearly 50 million children and adults in the U.S. suffer from nasal allergies.

There are two types of allergic rhinitis–seasonal and perennial. Symptoms of seasonal allergic rhinitis appear during spring, summer, and early fall. The seasonal variety is triggered by allergies from pollen, grass, trees, or airborne mold spores.

Some people experience nasal allergies year round, which is generally called perennial allergic rhinitis. This condition is typically triggered by sensitivity to house dust, dust mites, pet dander, and mold spores. Unknown food allergies are also considered a possible cause for perennial nasal symptoms. Some individuals might even experience both types of rhinitis, with perennial signs intensifying throughout certain pollen seasons.
