The word Rhinitis means inflammation of nasal mucous membrane. Allergic Rhinitis or hay fever as it is commonly known is an inflammatory condition of nasal mucosa triggered due to hypersensitivity or allergic reaction on exposure to allergens. It is characterized by spasmodic sneezing, nose block or stuffy nose, redness of eyes along with itching and watering of them.
Allergic reaction is triggered by substances known as Allergens. These allergens can be any normal substance which is usually harmless in individuals. In a hypersensitive person when exposed to an allergen it stimulates the circulating antibodies Immunoglobulin E (IgE), a part of our body’s defense mechanism. This in turn triggers the White blood Cells/WBC’s (Basophiles and Mast cells) to release chemical called Histamine which is responsible for the allergic symptoms. It causes blood vessels to dilate leading to local swelling and heat along with itching sensation.
The most common allergen responsible for Allergic Rhinitis is Pollen. Besides this, other common allergens responsible for allergic rhinitis are: dust mite, mold, perfumes, saw dust and insects like cockroaches
Types of Allergic Rhinitis:
The allergic rhinitis is of two types:
- Seasonal Allergic Rhinitis – as the name suggests, it occurs mainly in spring and fall season when pollen is in abundance.
- Perennial Allergic Rhinitis – occurs throughout the year without any seasonal variation.
The symptoms of allergic rhinitis include
- Persistent Sneezing
- Rhinorrhoea or running nose- They can be discharge of thin, watery fluid from the nose and in chronic cases the discharge may become thick and yellowish when sinuses are involved
- Nasal obstruction or stuffy nose
- Itching- inside the nostrils and eyes
- Lacrimation or watering of eyes
- Redness of eyes
- Sore throat and cough
- Swelling under the eyes
- In some allergic rhinitis can also cause allergic rash on skin.
Chronic allergic rhinitis may affect the quality of life of an individual. Sleep may be disturbed and they can feel increasing tiredness. Untreated allergic rhinitis can cause Sinusitis, ear infections and asthma.
