What are the types of allergic rhinitis?
Allergic Rhinitis can be distinctly categorized into two broad spectrums namely seasonal and perennial. Seasonal allergic rhinitis generally happens during the spring, summer and fall season. It is caused by outdoor allergens like molds and pollen in the air. While perennial allergic rhinitis occurs for an hour or more on most days throughout the year. Perennial allergic rhinitis is caused by indoor allergens such as dust mites, animal dander, cockroaches, stuffed toys, bedding, damp areas and so on.
How is allergic rhinitis diagnosed?
Despite the fact that clinical history is the core for any sort of diagnosis, the accurate identification of the allergens causing rhinitis is rigorously carried out through auxiliary diagnostic tests. The efficacy of these diagnostic tests is explicitly linked to the qualified technical capacity, the quality of the material used and the precise interpretation of the results. Prior to the test, the patient should steer clear of certain medications such as antihistamines (loratadine, chlorpheniramine, cetirizine, etc), corticosteroids (prednisone, cortisone, methylprednisolone, etc), and antidepressants to avoid errors in the diagnosis.
The treatment of allergic rhinitis involves allergy tests, immunotherapy, avoidance and pharmacotherapy.
