Allergic Rhinitis Defined
There are two kinds of allergic rhinitis, seasonal and perennial. Tree, grass, or weed pollens or mold can trigger seasonal allergic rhinitis. Because pollen counts are typically high during the early spring and the fall, seasonal allergic rhinitis symptoms often flare up during this time.
Perennial allergic rhinitis occurs continually throughout the year and is not based on the seasons. Perennial allergic rhinitis is usually caused by indoor allergens present all year round such as mold, pet dander, or dust mites.
Allergic Rhinitis Symptoms
Seasonal allergic rhinitis is associated mostly with repeated sneezing while perennial allergic rhinitis is more likely to trigger symptoms such as nasal congestion and postnasal drainage.
Treatment for Allergic Rhinitis
According to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, 37 million Americans are affected by sinusitis annually. Sinusitis can either be acute or chronic, depending on length of infection.
Both asthma and allergies have been connected to the occurrence of chronic sinusitis but environmental factors such as damp weather and air pollutants can also affect people suffering from chronic sinusitis. Diseases that affect the immune system can trigger chronic cases of sinusitis because you body is more prone to infection, including sinus infection.
The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases lists acute sinusitis as being caused by many things. Most cases begin as a common cold, caused by a virus. Colds do not cause sinusitis symptoms, but, rather, are the cause of the inflammation in the sinuses. This inflammation may increase the likelihood of developing acute sinusitis. Fungal infections and allergies can also trigger an acute sinus infection.
Because both allergic rhinitis and acute sinusitis can have similar symptoms it is best to discuss your symptoms with a doctor. Your physician can help you choose the best treatment options for your specific condition.
