Common questions

What is treatment for rhinitis?

Treatment for rhinitis will depend on the exact cause of your condition.

What happens during treatment for rhinitis?

You should see a doctor if you have symptoms that affect your quality of life. If the causes of your symptoms aren’t obvious, you may be referred to an Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT) specialist to have further tests. These may include allergy tests, blood tests or a further examination to eliminate other conditions such as sinusitis or nasal polyps. This may involve looking inside your nose with an endoscope, a small flexible instrument with a camera at the end.

Other tests include a nasal inspiratory flow test (to measure the airflow of your breathing) or computerised tomography (CT scan).
