Breathe easy: Understanding allergic rhinitis and finding relief

We’re often told to stop and smell the roses, which, figuratively speaking, isn’t a bad idea as it simply means to take a moment to pause and appreciate the simple pleasures in life. However, if you’re an allergic rhinitis sufferer – getting up close and personal with the flowers in the springtime, could trigger a range of pesky symptoms.  

If allergies are making your life miserable and you’re tired of constantly battling sneezing, congestion and itchy eyes during allergy season, we get it and understand how frustrating allergic rhinitis can be. But the good news is that we have a solution that can provide you with the relief you’ve been searching for. But first, let’s zone in on what allergic rhinitis is and how it differs from general allergies.

What is allergic rhinitis?

Unlike general allergies, which can flare up in different ways, including skin rashes, hives, an upset tummy or respiratory symptoms like sneezing and congestion, allergic rhinitis is a specific type of allergic reaction that primarily affects the nasal passages. Also known as hay fever, it’s mostly triggered by pollen. Main symptoms include:

  • Sneezing
  • A runny or stuffy nose 
  • Red, itchy and watery eyes
  • A scratchy throat

The difference between general allergies and allergic rhinitis

While allergic rhinitis is an allergic reaction, it’s focused on the upper respiratory tract and is often triggered by environmental allergens including pollen, dust mites, pet dander or mold spores. When you come into contact with these allergens, your immune system goes into high-alert mode, mistakenly treating them as harmful invaders.

What follows is a series of reactions as we described above, which can negatively impact your daily life. While allergic rhinitis isn't a serious health threat, we know it can be tedious to put up with, especially during allergy season and if left untreated, it can lead to other health issues.

Can allergic rhinitis lead to other health issues?

When you don't manage it well, allergic rhinitis can cause other health problems or make existing ones worse. Here are some possible health concerns and issues linked to allergic rhinitis that you should know about:


Allergic rhinitis can increase the risk of developing sinusitis (sinus infections) due to inflammation and congestion in the nasal passages, which can prevent or block your sinuses from draining properly.

Ear infections

Chronic nasal congestion and inflammation can lead to an increased susceptibility to ear infections, especially in children.


Studies have shown that allergic rhinitis and asthma often coexist. Untreated allergic rhinitis can worsen asthma symptoms, leading to more frequent asthma attacks.

Sleep problems

Nasal congestion, sneezing, and other allergic rhinitis symptoms can disrupt sleep, leading to sleep deprivation and general fatigue.

Foggy brain

According to Frontiers in Neuroscience, Chronic allergic rhinitis symptoms can affect cognitive function, concentration, and productivity, particularly in children and young adults.

Dental issues

This might sound surprising, but breathing through the mouth due to nasal congestion can lead to dry mouth and an increased risk of dental problems, such as cavities and gum disease.
