What is Perennial Allergic Rhinitis?

Allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever, is an allergic reaction that affects the nose. This allergic reaction is triggered when the nose and/or eyes comes into contact with allergens found in the environment such as pollens, dust mite, moulds and animal hair.

When the immune system recognizes a harmless substance as if it is harmful, it triggers an allergic reaction (like launching an “attack”). When people are exposed to an allergen that they are sensitive towards, their nasal passages become inflamed, causing sneezing, irritation, airflow obstruction, and mostly clear nasal discharge is produced.

How does allergic rhinitis affect you?

Allergic rhinitis affects the body's immune system by causing it to react to harmless allergens such as pollen, dust mites, animal dander as threatening invaders. White blood cell levels will usually increase in response to the allergen, and these cells trigger the release of histamine which triggers allergy symptoms. In severe cases allergic rhinitis can cause disturbance to a person’s day to day activities.

Risk Factors Can Influence The Risk of Developing Perennial allergic rhinitis

Genetics are NOT the only risk factor for Perennial Allergic Rhinitis.
Perennial Allergic Rhinitis is believed to be caused by a combination of environmental, genetic and lifestyle factors. Now that you have learnt about your genetic risk, you can determine how aggressively you need to make lifestyle changes to reduce your risk.
The earlier in your life that you commit to living a healthy lifestyle, the more you can reduce your risk for or delay the development of Perennial Allergic Rhinitis.

Exposed to Smoke

being exposed to tobacco smoke and diesel exhaust particles during early childhood increases the risk of an individual developing allergic rhinitis.

Other Allergic Condition

Having asthma or another allergic condition, such as eczema, is another risk factor of allergic rhinitis.

Family History

Having a family history of allergic rhinitis increases the likelihood of an individual of getting allergic rhinitis.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Dietary Recommendations:

  1. Cleanliness of carpet in home or office is important as carpet may contain a large number of mites, mold, and dust, which are common allergens for allergic rhinitis (AR).
  2. Live and work in clean environments to avoid relevant allergens (e.g., house dust mites, moulds, pets, pollens) and irritants (e.g., tobacco smoke) that trigger allergic rhinitis.

Dietary Recommendations:

  1. Having an antioxidant-rich diet in childhood may contribute to the prevention of allergic rhinitis.
  2. Warm fluids like tea or soups will help to break the congestion in your airways, and clear out the mucus.
  3. Some studies suggest that taking probiotics or healthy bacteria found in yogurt can slightly reduce the symptoms of pollen allergy in children.
