Allergic rhinitis is an allergic inflammation of the nasal airways. It occurs when an allergen, such as pollen, dust or animal dander (particles of shed skin and hair) is inhaled by an individual with a sensitized immune system.
Allergies are common. Heredity and environmental exposures may contribute to a predisposition to allergies. It is roughly estimated that one in three people have an active allergy at any given time and at least three in four people develop an allergic reaction at least once in their lives.
Signs and symptoms
The characteristic symptoms of allergic rhinitis are: rhinorrhea (excess nasal secretion), itching, and nasal congestion and obstruction.
Characteristic physical findings include conjunctival swelling and erythema, eyelid swelling, lower eyelid venous stasis, transverse nasal crease, swollen nasal turbinates, and middle ear effusion.
Homoeopathy and Allergic Rhinitis:
Homoeopathic treatment of allergies is best carried out by an experienced clinician. As with any other medical condition, homoeopathic medicine is not used to treat diseases but to treat patients; any successful, long term, treatment will likely require a complete medical history, evaluation and determination of the particular “constitutional” medicine, suited for the patient, and provided by a clinician specialized in homoeopathic treatment.
