Assessment and medical management of nasal allergies
Many people who suffer with hayfever, runny nose, itching, sneezing, nasal blockages, year-round allergies and inflammation may not be aware of an allergic cause.
Assessment involves careful history and examination of the nose, and allergy testing. This allows the patient to reduce exposure to allergens and to achieve long-term control of symptoms using the best medical treatments.
We use the best current evidence to prescribe medications, as recommended in international guidelines. Cleaning the nose with salt water washes can also be very helpful. In difficult-to-treat cases, there is sometimes a role for immunotherapy (treatment to make patients no longer allergic) and limited surgery to reduce nasal blockage.
