What is Rhinitis?
Rhinitis is a common symptom that is simply referred to as a runny nose. Rhinitis accompanies many infections and allergies, so it is common that patients will experience its symptoms at some point. Rhinitis can cause sneezing, congestion and a runny nose, making it difficult to breathe and participate in other activities.
Fortunately, there are effective treatment options for rhinitis that can alleviate its symptoms and provide patients with relief. Bakersfield Sinus Center offers these treatments to patients suffering from rhinitis.
How is Rhinitis Diagnosed?
Rhinitis is a common symptom of many conditions, so it can be difficult to diagnose at times. If you are experiencing stuffiness, a runny nose, sneezing or related symptoms that last for long periods of time, you may want to consider visiting Dr. Vadapalli for a diagnosis.
Rhinitis is typically caused by the inflammation or swelling of tissue in the nose. This can be due to allergies, infections, and a variety of other conditions. When you visit Bakersfield Sinus Center, we assess your symptoms and perform an examination to determine the source of your rhinitis. Once we determine the primary cause, we can recommend a treatment that will work for you.
How is Rhinitis Treated?
The treatment of your rhinitis will depend on your diagnosis.
When rhinitis is a secondary effect of another condition, we may recommend treatment that directly addresses the primary condition in order to relieve rhinitis and its symptoms.
In other cases, we may recommend ClariFix®. ClariFix® is a minimally invasive treatment that soothes the tissue in the nose to alleviate swelling and irritation. As a result, stuffiness, sneezing, and other symptoms of rhinitis should resolve following treatment.
Can Rhinitis Be Completely Cured?
At Bakersfield Sinus Center, our goal is to help you achieve an improved quality of life by providing long-term relief from rhinitis. However, the cause of your rhinitis will determine the extent and duration of the results you are able to achieve.
If your rhinitis is a localized issue that is not caused by other infections or conditions, ClariFix® should be effective in quickly alleviating your symptoms. If your rhinitis is caused by other factors, we may recommend ClariFix® in combination with other treatments in order to provide a more comprehensive treatment solution.
In any case, because it has several causes, rhinitis is not a condition that can be prevented. While treatment can significantly reduce its symptoms, rhinitis may still develop again in the future as a result of allergies, colds and other infections.
