Rhinitis is seen commonly in two forms; these two variants are allergic rhinitis and non allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis is also known as hay fever, and it occurs when the immune system of the victim of rhinitis overreacts to the particles which prove sensitive for you. These particles which call sensitivity of immune system is called allergens and allergens can be of different types. On in other way, different individual has different types of allergy sensitivity.
Non allergic Rhinitis is involved with blocked and runny nose, continuous sneezing and red eyes just like the common symptoms of allergic rhinitis. There is no specific reason for induction of non-allergic rhinitis however it is more irritating than harmful.
Allergic rhinitis has similar symptoms like non-allergic. Continuous sneezing, dripping nose, and postnasal drip are common nuisances caused by allergic rhinitis. If you have sinus or nasal infection the dripping may turn into yellowish in color. The patients of allergic rhinitis suffer from itchy, red, and watery eyes and an abnormal itching is felt within throat, ear, and nose.
The common allergens which cause allergic rhinitis are pollens from different plant and flower sources, animal dander, dust mites, mold, and cockroaches etc; wood dust, cereal grain, certain chemicals, and certain lab animals may initiate the bout of allergic rhinitis in the allergy sensitive patients. The patients who have sensitivity against pollen may suffer from allergic rhinitis once in a year whereas patients allergic of dust, animal dander, and cockroaches may develop the bout of allergic rhinitis several times around the year.
Allergic rhinitis treatment is long termed one and rhinitis treatment does not provide complete cure from the complications. The best natural rhinitis treatment is intentional avoidance of the reacting allergens and to live in an airy and hygienic environment. Those who have pollen allergy, they should prefer remaining indoor in the seasonal times when pollens are found largely in air.
Rhinitis treatment depends on its type. Allergic rhinitis treatment is often done by allergy pills, nasal sprays, and living in a dust free airy room with fresh bed sheets and pillow covers in order to eliminate the harmful effect of dust mite on the immune system of the affected patient.
Those who are chronic patients of asthma over-the-counter-medicines often serve the purpose of Allergic rhinitis treatment. However, senior members, children, pregnant and lactating women should consult doctor before taking any allergy medicine.
Sometimes immunotherapy is applied for Allergic rhinitis treatment.
The treatment of non-allergic rhinitis largely depends on the severity of symptoms. Non-allergic rhinitis treatment is done by symptom specific treatment process.
