Rhinitis

Rhinitis is caused by the inflammation of the nasal passages. It is often associated with a runny nose, nasal congestion, watery or itchy eyes, and an itchy nose. Allergies can be a cause of rhinitis.

If you think you have rhinitis, speak with your doctor to reduce the symptoms of this condition.
