The reason why people get allergic rhinitis can be caused by different allergens in each person. In general, allergen substances taken by the airway cause allergic rhinitis. If we give an example of allergens we take from the air, we can show animal hair and pollen as an example. Allergic rhinitis can be seen during a certain season or it can last all year. Allergic rhinitis seen during a certain season is known as hay fever. Allergic rhinitis, which is seen during a certain season, is generally seen in the spring seasons. Itching in the nose, congestion and watery nasal discharge are among the symptoms. Perineal allergic rhinitis type continues throughout the year. Patients always suffer from nasal congestion.
Types of Allergic Rhinitis and Treatment
Nasal inflammation is called allergic because it occurs as a result of allergy. Rhinitis means inflammation of the nose. Our immune system responds to substances that may cause allergies that have entered our body. If the body encounters the same substance again later, it recognizes this substance or substances and shows the feature of creating special antibodies belonging to this substance or substances. Although the first occurrences are generally encountered in childhood and adolescence, they can also occur in different age groups. It is common for other allergic diseases such as asthma to be encountered frequently in patients with allergic rhinitis. Because allergic diseases such as asthma, people with this disease have a tendency to allergic diseases, it is common to see allergic diseases. As the age progresses, the symptoms related to the disease become rare. In allergic rhinitis, even if the complaints about the disease decrease as people get older, recovery cannot be achieved without treatment. Allergic rhinitis caused by pollen is also known as hay fever.
