What is the treatment for rhinitis?
Your breathing will be easier after an Ohio allergist has performed skin prick testing and/or blood testing to identify possible airborne allergens that trigger your rhinitis. Once these allergens are identified, you should avoid them if possible. Such measures may include remaining indoors when the pollen count is high and on windy days, dust-proofing the home and keeping animals out of the bedroom.
Treatment options may include the use of:
- Corticosteroid nasal sprays
Allergy shots, also known as allergen immunotherapy, may be recommended if avoidance and medications are not effective.
