Allergic rhinitis

Allergic rhinitis is referred to in common usage as "hay fever". It is characterised by sneezing and runny secretions of mucous. With about 12 million sufferers, hay fever is one of the most common allergic conditions in Europe. Allergic rhinitis generally first develops during childhood. Its annoying symptoms interact significantly with the patient's social life which may be highly disadvantageous to performance at school and work. The patient's quality of life suffers as a result of snoring, sleeping complaints and drowsiness, and the condition can even reduce a child's learning capacity. The most common substances triggering these allergies are pollen (seasonal) and mites (all year round). There is furthermore a close link between allergic rhinitis and asthma. This is because many patients with allergic rhinitis develop asthma during the illness, and vice versa.
