Rhinitis or inflammation of the nose is one of the most common illnesses in the United States. It affects about 50 million people. You may be one of those. It often coexists with other respiratory disorders like asthma. Rhinitis is significant and affects quality of life of those suffering from it.
It is initially caused by substances that we breathe in. These substances are called “allergens”. An allergen is usually a harmless substance that does not usually cause symptoms unless you have a genetic predisposition to suffer this condition. This problem usually arises when the immune system identifies intruders and creates a reaction that is usually manifested as nasal congestion, watery itchy eyes, constant postnasal drainage, skin itching, hives, etc.
