Allergic rhinitis, or hayfever, is the medical term for inflammation of the nasal passages due to an air-borne protein called an allergen.  Symptoms can include sneezing, runny nose, nasal congestion, and itchy nose.  Often, recurrent symptoms are confused for colds or sinus infections.  Uncontrolled allergic rhinitis can lead to restless sleep, chronic fatigue, poor concentration, antibiotic overuse, and sometimes poor performance in school or work. 

          Seasonal allergic rhinitis may be due to grass, trees, weed, or mold allergens in the air.  Perennial or "year-round" allergies might be caused by dust mites, mold, pet dander, cockroach, mice/rats.  At Allergy & Asthma Care of Houston, we work with you to help identify potential triggers for your symptoms.  Once potential triggers have been identified, we can work on a regimen that will include avoidance techniques and possible medications to help manage or alleviate your problems.  Only trained allergy physicians can effectively offer allergen immunotherapy (allergy shots) as a tool to help patients who suffer from allergic rhinitis.
