Non-allergic rhinitis is defined as a condition causing abundant chronic watery rhinorrhoea which is not allergic in aetiology. It is a general term having a number of conditions, which include Hormonal rhinitis, Vasomotor rhinitis, Occupational rhinitis, Drug-induced rhinitis, Non-allergic rhinitis with eosinophilia syndrome (NARES). Rhinitis is common in Poland as it affects nearly 25% of the population and it is a major social problem. Rhinitis was self-reported by 36.08% of the respondents (37.8% of 6–7 year olds, 34.5% of 13–14 year olds, and 36.0% of adults). Again, the lowest prevalence rate was in the rural region (16.0%). AR was more frequent in males (24.0%) than in females (21.2%) (OR = 1.079; 95%CI: 1.044–1.116). AR was actually diagnosed by a clinician in 28.9%.
Non-allergic rhinitis of all types is rare in children, and is poorly understood. The true incidence in children are unknown. Children presenting with NARES account for less than 2% of children with nasal eosinophilia. Second-generation oral antihistamines may be used to control symptoms of rhinitis. Nasal corticosteroids may be beneficial in pediatric patients presenting with rhinorrhea, sneezing, pruritus, and congestion. Avoidance of inciting factors such as sudden in temperature, humidity, blasts of air or dust.Intranasal corticosteroids and intranasal antihistamines are useful. Reduction of hypertrophied turbinates, Correction of Nasal septum deviation, Removal of polyps, Sectioning of the parasympathetic secretomotor fiber to nose (vidian neurectomy) for controlling refractory excessive rhinorrhoea.
