What are the symptoms and signs of allergic rhinitis?

Both forms of allergic rhinitis present with:

  • Repeated sneezing
  • A blocked nose with a watery nasal discharge
  • Red, swollen eyes (allergic conjunctivitis)

Seasonal rhinitis also has itching of the nose, eyes, ears and soft palate. Itching is uncommon in persistent rhinitis.

Children with persistent allergic rhinitis usually have a pale face with blue colouration of the lower eyelids. Due to upward rubbing of the nose they often have a crease at the base of the nose.
