Non-allergic rhinitis is more irritating than harmful, it can make you uncomfortable. Triggers of non-allergic rhinitis symptoms are different and can include some odors or irritants in the air, changes in the weather, some medications, certain foods, and chronic health conditions. A diagnosis of non-allergic rhinitis is made after an allergic cause is ruled out. It requires allergy skin or blood tests. Non-allergic rhinitis can't be cured. But it can be controlled by: Avoiding rhinitis triggers, Using home remedies such as nasal irrigation, Taking over the counter and prescription medications
Prevalence of chronic nasal congestion was 16.1% and of chronic rhinorrhea 14.1%.Patients whose condition is refractory to medical therapy may seek additional treatment. Surgical therapy should be considered a possible adjuvant to continued medical therapy. Intranasal examination may demonstrate a deviated septum and/or pronounced turbinate hypertrophy. Many surgical techniques are available to treat inferior turbinate hypertrophy, including submucous resection with or without outfracture, cryotherapy, laser cauterization, electrocauterization, and/or turbinectomy. A randomized control trial of 382 patients with 6-year follow-up was conducted to evaluate submucous resection with lateral displacement (outfracture) in terms of efficacy and complications, and found outcomes to be statistically better than turbinectomy, laser or cryotherapy, or electrocautery.
