Allergic Rhinitis - Symptoms

It all starts with a runny nose and constant sneezing!

A person with allergic rhinitis (nasal allergy) may experience one or a combination of the following symptoms:

  • Constant Sneezing
  • Runny nose (rhinorrhoea)
  • Nasal congestion
  • Itchy nose, ear, throat, eyes
  • Watery eyes
  • Reduced sense of smell
  • Post-nasal discharge

Additional symptoms in some chronic cases of allergic rhinitis may include:

  • Cough (because of post-nasal discharge)
  • Sinus headaches
  • Nasal polyps
  • Eyelid swelling
  • Blocked ears
  • Redness of the white part of eyes (Injected sclerae)

How is allergic rhinitis or nasal allergy diagnosed? Usually, doctors will take a complete history of 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
  • Allergic shiners – darkened areas under eyes, which may be due to congestion of venous blood
