Rhinitis is a very common disease and has many different causes. Basically, it can be defined as inflammation of the inner lining of the nose. To be more specific, it can be defined by the presence of one or more of the following symptoms:

  1. Nasal congestion
  2. Rhinorrhea (runny nose)
  3. Sneeze
  4. Nasal itching

There is a very significant relationship between rhinitis (allergic), asthma, and chronic sinusitis (inflammation of the sinuses ) in some people. Some evidence suggests that 1 to 3 in 5 patients have various health conditions related to the presence of allergic rhinitis.

Hygiene in the environment in which people with rhinitis live , as well as the existence of ventilation and the entry of sunlight, helps prevent the development of mold and fungi in the place, which can be beneficial to avoid this condition.
