What are other causes of rhinitis?

When you’re looking to breathe easy in Columbus, you’ve got to know what you’re up against in the area. Not all rhinitis can be blamed on Mother Nature. Rhinitis can result from anything, from the common cold, to cigarette smoke, cleaning solutions or chlorine in swimming pools. Rhinitis symptoms may also be caused by structural blockage of the nasal passage, irritants, medications, temperature changes and other physical factors. These are often called vasomotor rhinitis or non-allergic rhinitis.
