Overview
Allergic rhinitis is a reaction by our immune system to otherwise harmless allergen. It primarily causes our body to identify and react to harmless external particles wrongly. Therefore, it becomes hugely important for the general physician or an experienced pediatrician to treat such problems swiftly and efficiently without any delay.

Alter getting infected, the symptoms are usually immediate. Following are among the most noticeable allergic rhinitis symptoms that determine the depth and intensity of the affliction:

Sneezing
A stuffy nose
Coughing
An itchy nose
A runny nose
Excessive fatigue
Dark circles under the eyes
Itchy eyes

A sore and scratchy throat

Causes of Allergic rhinitis

Animal dander
Dust Mites
Mold

Pet saliva

Allergic Rhinitis & Asthma
Patients already suffering from diseases like asthma and eczema generally can suffer from extreme forms of allergic rhinitis due to the accompanying traits of such a condition. It is caused mainly when the body falsely identifies harmless dust and mild allergic particles and releases a defense mechanism chemical called histamine. This results in an immense allergic reaction and may require the extensive treatment from a general physician to get rid of such symptoms and problems.
Diagnosing Allergic rhinitis
Allergic rhinitis specialists can also perform a few other tests to determine the depth of the problem. This can involve many ways such as skin prick test and radioallergosorbent test with which the doctor can quickly diagnose the probable cause and provide target specific medications.
Allergic Rhinitis Treatment
Allergic rhinitis treatment may involve several medications such as antihistamines that reduce symptoms of the histamine chemical released by our bodies which are triggered by allergic materials. A few of the most common antihistamines used are:

Desloratadine (Clarinex)
Cetirizine (Zyrtec)
Diphenhydramine (Benadryl)
Loratadine (Claritin)
Fexofenadine (Allegra)
