What is the management of allergic rhinitis?

  1. Try to identify and avoid any likely cause (allergens).
  2. Use newer non-sedating oral antihistamine drugs (e.g. Zyrtec).
  3. Avoid decongestant nose drops.
  4. Steroid nasal spray is very effective, especially in persistent allergic rhinitis.

Desensitisation is very effective if the allergic rhinitis is due to a single cause, e.g. grass pollen or house dust mite.
