104445 - How to Treat quiz: Allergic rhinitis

  • : Online
Relevance to General Practice

Allergic rhinitis, or ‘hay fever’, is a common, IgE-mediated inflammatory disorder of the nasopharyngeal mucosa that occurs in response to allergen exposure in prone individuals. Improperly treated, allergic rhinitis is a chronic disorder with a potentially significant disease burden. This is as a result of its negative impact on sleep quality, and impairment of school and work performance, as well as leisure activities. There is strong evidence that suggests untreated allergic rhinitis increases the risk of incident asthma and the likelihood that asthma will progress, unremitted, into adulthood.
