THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF ALLERGIC RHINITIS

Allergic rhinitis may sound like an unpleasant medical diagnosis. However, up to 30 percent of people worldwide are affected by allergic rhinitis,1 which means you’re certainly not alone if you experience allergy symptoms.

What is allergic rhinitis? To answer this question, it’s important to understand the two types of allergic rhinitis: seasonal and perennial allergic rhinitis.

SEASONAL ALLERGIC RHINITIS

An allergic inflammation of the nasal airways is known as allergic rhinitis, or hay fever. Inflammation occurs when an allergen (like pollen or mold) enters the nasal passageways. From there, the body attempts to attack and remove the intruder by activating allergic responses which produce the inflammatory substances (like histamine) that cause your symptoms. Allergic rhinitis is characterized by the symptoms listed below.2

  

PERENNIAL ALLERGIC RHINITIS

The body experiences the same inflammatory response as seasonal allergic rhinitis, with one main difference. Perennial rhinitis is characterized by the frequency of symptoms–occurring for at least one hour on most days throughout the year.3

The most common allergens that trigger perennial allergic rhinitis come from dust mites and animals–especially household pets like cats and dogs.3 Other possible triggers include mold on wallpaper, houseplants, and carpeting.4

  

ALLERGIC RHINITIS SYMPTOMS

The most common symptoms for both seasonal allergic rhinitis and perennial allergic rhinitis include:

  • Nasal congestion (stuffy nose)5
  • Excessive sneezing5
  • Runny nose and/or postnasal drip5
  • Itchy nose5
  • Itchy, watery eyes5
