Traitement rhinite allergiqueIntermittent when linked to pollen or grass allergens, or persistent when triggered by dust mites, animal hair, mould and mildew spores, 9 times out of 10 allergic rhinitis affects people under the age of 40, most often male.


WHAT IS ALLERGIC RHINITIS ?

Allergic rhinitis is the inflammation of the nasal mucous membrane after repeated contact with one or several allergens. Allergic rhinitis manifests itself in the appearance of at least two symptoms such as nasal obstruction, runny nose, watery eyes, pruritus (itching)


POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS

Allergic rhinitis can have a considerable negative effect on quality of life, notably by causing sleep disturbance. This becomes critical at the point when it leads to days off work. People prone to allergic rhinitis are also more susceptible to ENT infections.


ALLERGIC RHINITIS, THE IMPORTANCE OF TAKING FAST ACTION…

Certain traditional medications used to treat allergic rhinitis can cause undesirable side effects. The benefit/risk ratio should be assessed and their use even reduced through nasal washing with PHYSIOMER:

  • Vasoconstrictors: rebound effect, dependency…
  • Antihistamines: drowsiness, weight gain…
  • Inhaled corticosteroids: drying for the mucous membrane, stunted growth in children…

 

HOW IS ALLERGIC RHINITIS BEST TREATED?

The first course of action is to avoid contact with the allergen. Desensitisation (or allergen immunotherapy) remains the only treatment to address the actual cause of the allergy.
Effective and well tolerated, ENT specialists recommend saline solutions together with medical treatments for allergic and non-allergic (occupational) rhinitis.
To ease symptoms during an attack use PHYSIOMER Hypertonic 2-3 times daily. PHYSIOMER reduces nasal symptoms by 68% in patients suffering with allergic rhinitis.
As an adjuvant therapy, PHYSIOMER also improves efficacy and reduces use of topical treatments. After 2 weeks using PHYSIOMER, corticosteroid treatment is no longer necessary.
