Rhinitis

What is Rhinitis?

Rhinitis or coryza is irritation and inflammation of the mucous membrane inside the nose. Common symptoms of rhinitis are a stuffy nose, runny nose, and post-nasal drip. The most common kind of rhinitis is allergic rhinitis, which is usually triggered by airborne allergens such as pollen and dander.

Questions and answers on "Rhinitis"

I develop severe rhinitis after an endoscopy procedure. Is this due an allergic reaction to the cannula because of its length or what is it made of? How can I prevent this. The rhinitis lasts from 48-72 hours with watery eyes and voluminous liquids running out of the nose. The night after the endoscopy procedure I generally cannot sleep due to the constant sneezing.
How can I prevent this from happening? Specialized cannula with shorter tip? As for no glutaraldehyde disinfection? I have to have this procedure yearly and once it developed, each time I have this problem regardless of the anesthetic.
Any information would be appreciated.

hello and welcome to health care magic,

It is nearly impossible to prevent rhinitis if you are prone to it due to endoscopy.
But you can control the symptoms and in many cases the severity and also the occurrence if you take an antihistamine in consultation with your doctor like levocetrzine

Hope...

Thanks for your query, I have gone through your query.
The pain in and around the eyes can be because of the sinusitis. Nothing to be panic, consult a good ENT surgeon and get the deviated nasal septum corrected surgically.
I hope I have answered your query, take care.

Hi,
I have moderate sinusitis, rhinitis and moderately enlarged turbinates. These likely cause headaches in the forehead area, although they also appear on the sides of the head. My eyeballs in particular also feel the dull pain.
What do you recommend as immediate treatment. Would a saline spray be a good idea? I did not have a saline spray but tried steam inhalation once and it seemed to take away the eyeball pain completely. Would regular steam inhalation also be helpful?
I have also been prescribed antihistamines in the past. What is the best way to prevent the issue from becoming chronic, as I have seen how serious the condition becomes when the turbinates become permanently enlarged.

I m military and in basic and AIT (both located in GA) I developed a odd sounding chronic cough. I went through numerous tests to include XRAY, Methacholine challenge, GERD, Allergy and others I can t recall. I also have rhinitis which I m told by the allergist is not due to any allergy (I had a full skin test). It mostly subsided when I was stationed in Ft Lewis, WA while I was taking flonase and zyrtec. I ve since been stationed at Hunter AAF, GA and now the cough is back in full force and my rhinitis is no longer controlled by flonase. An allergist back at fort gordon told me it was cough variant asthma( after successfully reducing the symptoms with prednisone and then advair) but the pulmonologist at both fort gordon and fort lewis insist that I don t have asthma. While my symptoms are present I have a shortness of breath during running and similar exercises but to a lesser extent in washington. I had no issues during my deployment to Iraq (my 2 mile run times dropped four minutes with no changes in behavior) I was 18 when in Basic and AIT and now am 22 soon to be 23. Any ideas?

I a 33, 5 2, 160 lbs and have some symptoms of either MS or Devic s Disease (optic neuritis, spinal lesions, abnormal spinal tap). I have allergic rhinitis, gerd, and diverticulosis. My question or concern today is that I have no symptoms of sinusitis in my opinion, but my ears feel like there is a lot of pressure in them. Went to urgent care and they told me that is was sinusitis and that I had air trapped in my ears. i was given ru-hist, ru-hist d, astepro and verimist and also a hydrocortisone shot. This was on Thursday and nothing has helped, what should I do next?
