Allergic Rhinitis Symptoms

It all starts with a runny nose and constant sneezing.  You might experience one or a combination of the following allergic rhinitis symptoms.

  • Constant sneezing and cough
  • Runny nose
  • Nasal congestion
  • Itchy nose, ears, throat or eyes
  • Watery eyes
  • Reduced sense of smell
  • Post-nasal discharge
  • Sinus headaches
  • Eyelid swelling
  • Blocked ears
  • Redness of the white part of eyes

Common causes of allergic rhinitis

When you have allergic rhinitis, your immune system identifies a harmless substance (allergen) as harmful and produces antibodies to fight it. The next time you come in contact with this substance, these antibodies signal your immune system to release chemicals called histamines to fight allergens. This causes a reaction that leads to the symptoms of allergic rhinitis. Few allergens or triggers of allergic rhinitis are as follows.

  • Indoor allergens like pet hair or dust mites.
  • Irritants like cigarette smoke, diesel exhaust and perfume.
  • Outdoor allergens like pollens from grass, trees and weeds.

How is allergic rhinitis diagnosed?

Usually, doctors will take a complete history of the patient suspected for allergic rhinitis and prognosis is made. In addition, physical examination that helps clinicians to affirm the condition, include the following.

  • Pale discoloration of the lining of the nose
  • Nasal polyps in some cases
  • Swelling of the eyelid
  • Darkened areas under eyes which might be due to congestion of venous blood

The homeopathic doctors will perform a physical examination, take your medical history and might also recommend any of the following tests:

  • Skin prick test: This test uses a small amount of allergen extract that is pricked into the skin of your arm. Within a stipulated period, it is observed for any signs of an exaggerated skin reaction.
  • Intra-dermal tests: In this test, the allergen extract is injected between layers of the skin and observed for allergic reaction on the tested site.

How homeopathy treats it?

You can treat allergic rhinitis with homeopathy; a natural system of medicine that supports the body’s intrinsic healing capacity on a subtle level. It is inexpensive. And when prescribed according to individual needs by a qualified homeopath, it can be highly effective.

There are 5 advantages of homeopathic allergic rhinitis treatment.

  1. Homeopathy considers that stress might aggravate allergic rhinitis and treats both together going to the root of the problem.
  2. Homeopathy is safe and free from side effects.
  3. Homeopathy is a holistic form of treatment. You do not need different homeopathic medicines for allergic rhinitis to treat various manifestations such as watering of the nose or the itching of the eyes, unlike conventional medicine which prescribes different medicines for each complaint.
  4. No two allergic individuals have the same symptoms, and hence, no two individuals get the same medicine. Every patient is treated according to the specifics of one’s condition.
  5. Homeopathic treatment builds specific immunity against known allergens and general immunity against unknown allergens.
