Treatment options for Allergic Rhinitis include environmental control, medication or surgery.
Reducing exposure to allergens can help avoid triggering an Allergic Rhinitis flare.
- Nasal steroid sprays are highly effective and form the mainstay of treatment. They need to be used consistently and with the correct technique to produce the best results.
- Antihistamines and decongestants reduce nasal discharge, sneezing and nasal congestion.
Surgery may be considered for those who have persistent nasal obstruction despite regular use of medication.
Immunotherapy may be considered for those who have significant sneezing, itchiness or runny nose and have had allergens identified via allergen testing.
