Abstract

Rhinitis occurs for a variety of reasons in both adults and children.1 In South Africa, 20–30% of these cases occur as a consequence of allergy.2 Characteristics of allergic rhinitis include symptoms such as rhinorrhoea, congestion, nasopharyngeal itching and sneezing.2 Ocular symptoms, such as red, itchy, watery eyes may also be present.3 Allergic rhinitis places a burden on the individual’s quality of life.1 Therapeutic options range from nasal sprays to oral antihistamines, or a combination of both.
