Allergic rhinitis is defined as a symptomatic disorder of the nasal mucosa that occurs after contact with environmental allergens resulting in an inflammatory reaction. Some people have allergic rhinitis only during certain periods of the year, while others may have it at any time of the year.

Allergic rhinitis has very similar symptoms as the common cold, and this especially applies to sneezing, itchy nostrils and nasal congestion, however, allergic rhinitis is not a viral disease. Seasonal allergic rhinitis can be caused by pollen from weeds, grasses or trees. House dust, feathers, mold, animal hair and some medications can cause non-seasonal allergic rhinitis. Sudden changes in temperature, physical exertion, tobacco smoke, and air pollution can worsen symptoms.

Allergic rhinitis often occurs in childhood or early adulthood and is associated with a familial predisposition to allergies, particularly hay fever, asthma, and eczema. The most common symptoms of allergic rhinitis are sneezing, stuffy nose and runny nose, itching and redness of the nose and eyes, a burning sensation and tearing of the eyes, and an irritating cough and scratching in the throat.
