Symptoms of Allergic rhinitis

Symptoms of Allergic rhinitis: Introduction

Symptoms of allergic rhinitis can vary greatly in intensity, frequency, and duration among individuals. Symptoms can be minimal and include mild itching and watering of the nose and eyes that goes away quickly after the allergen is no longer present.

Itching may be more moderate and include other areas, such as the mouth, skin and throat. Sneezing also frequently occurs and swelling of the nasal tissues may occur, resulting in impaired smell and taste.

Other symptoms may include nasal congestion, coughing, headache, sore throat, plugged feeling in ears, under-eye puffiness, fatigue, and a spacey "head-in-the-clouds" feeling.

Symptoms commonly begin in infancy or childhood, but can occur at any time during life. It is not unusual for symptoms to lessen, change in nature, or disappear during adulthood.

Symptoms of hayfever, in which a person is allergic to pollen, generally only occur during the season or seasons in which the specific pollen or pollens are produced. Hayfever is also called seasonal allergic rhinitis, and symptoms often occur during spring and/or fall.
