hi,thanks for query.This allergic rhinitis only.Some allergen like dust,smoke or strong smell acts as triggers and that leads to allergic reaction which can lead to series of events.If you can find one,please avoid allergen is the best treatment,in other case you can go allergy testing and try to find a cause.Some anti allergic immunoglobin injections gives relief for long term,please discuss this with your doctor.
wishing good health.

Allegra is the drug used for allergic rhinitis symptoms control. it will not help in non allergic rhinitis. the cause for non allergic rhinitis is not allergey, this should be confirmed by allergen and nasal tissue examination. there are many types of non allergic rhynitis and each has different treatment. if not allergic rhinitis than there is no point in taking the Allegra
