Chronic Rhinitis

Chronic rhinitis is a condition that is characterized by inflammation of the nasal passages and symptoms such as nasal congestion, runny nose, and sneezing. Chronic rhinitis is different from acute rhinitis, which is a short-term condition that is usually caused by a viral infection. Chronic rhinitis, on the other hand, is a long-term condition that persists for an extended period of time.

There are two main types of chronic rhinitis: allergic rhinitis and non-allergic rhinitis. Allergic rhinitis is caused by an allergic reaction to substances such as pollen, dust, or pet dander. Non-allergic rhinitis is not caused by an allergy and may be triggered by factors such as environmental irritants, medications, or hormonal changes.

Symptoms of chronic rhinitis may include nasal congestion, runny nose, sneezing, and post-nasal drip. In severe cases, chronic rhinitis may also cause headaches, fatigue, and difficulty sleeping.

Treatment for chronic rhinitis may include medications such as decongestants and antihistamines to relieve symptoms, as well as lifestyle changes to reduce exposure to allergens or irritants. In some cases, nasal corticosteroids or other medications may be necessary to manage the condition.

If you are experiencing chronic rhinitis and are seeking treatment, it is important to see a doctor for proper diagnosis and treatment. Chronic rhinitis can be a frustrating and disruptive condition, but with the right treatment, it is often possible to manage the symptoms and improve quality of life.
