What is non-allergic rhinitis?

Rhinitis is a group of symptoms affecting the nose. Symptoms include a stuffy, watery, or itchy nose. Non-allergic rhinitis may cause the same symptoms, but allergies are not the cause.

What causes non-allergic rhinitis?

How is it treated?

Your healthcare provider will tell you which treatment to use.

Allergies do not cause non-allergic rhinitis so allergy shots will not help.

If more information is needed, you may be referred to an Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) specialist.
