What causes Allergic Rhinitis?

There appear to be both genetic and environmental factors contributing to the development of allergic rhinitis. The most common allergen for perennial rhinitis is the house dust mite, followed by allergens carried by the hair on cats and dogs.

Triggers

Outdoor allergens, such as pollens from grass, trees and weeds.

Indoor allergens, such as pet hair or dander, dust mites and mold.

Irritants, such as cigarette smoke, perfume and diesel exhaust.

Family history of having allergic asthma / allergic rhinitis / allergic skin condition may help narrow a suspicion in the low clinical suspicion case.

What are the Symptoms?

Sneezing.

Runny nose and nasal congestion:

Itchy nose / sneezing and/or palate.

Symptoms tend to be worse on waking.

Usually associated symptoms in the eyes, with watering, itching, redness or swelling.

Asthmatic symptoms like difficulty breathing and coughing on strong smell or dust exposure.

Allergic rhinitis can be associated with:

Decreased concentration and focus.

Limited activities.

Itchy nose / sneezing and/or palate.

How will be diagnosed for Allergic rhinitis?

After taking a history for nasal and asthmatic complaints, the next step is towards doing the appropriate tests. Skin prick test help to understand the nature of allergic problem and further treatment decisions. Prick or scratch test: In this test, a tiny drop of a possible allergen is pricked or scratched into the skin. Also known as a percutaneous test, this is the most common type of skin test. The results are known within 10 to 20 minutes.Blood test or specific IGE will be used only in those situations in which the skin test cannot be done or relied upon due to any reasons. Dr. Vishal Gupta and Dr. Deepika Ughade are specially trained in conducting this test with prick test for the accurate diagnosis of the allergy.
