What is chronic rhinitis?

Does it feel like your nose runs or feels stuffed up almost every single day? Or do you have what feels like constant post-nasal drip, congestion, nasal/throat itching, and sneezing? If so, you may be one of the millions of people with chronic rhinitis, a common but often undiagnosed condition. While chronic rhinitis does share some symptoms with seasonal allergies, its sufferers typically deal with these issues all year long.

Chronic rhinitis is persistent inflammation of the tissues lining the nose, resulting in symptoms such as a constant runny nose and often post-nasal drip, congestion, coughing, nasal itching, and sneezing. While symptoms may be related to allergies, symptoms from chronic rhinitis may occur all year.

This challenging condition can negatively impact your life in countless ways. And trying to find an effective treatment can be frustrating. Like many, you may manage your symptoms using medications and sprays. Unfortunately, these treatments only provide temporary relief. It is only when the root cause of your rhinitis is addressed that you can expect to find real, lasting relief.

Symptoms of chronic rhinitis include:

  • Persistently runny nose
  • Post-nasal drip
  • Nasal congestion
  • Itching and sneezing

What Causes Chronic Rhinitis?

  • For many patients, chronic rhinitis may be caused by abnormal or overactive nerve signals in the nose. The signals can cause mucus creation to go into overdrive, creating a near-constant runny, stuffy nose and/or post-nasal drip.
  • While not life-threatening, chronic rhinitis can seriously impact your quality of life. Sufferers feel dependent on medications that often only deliver temporary relief, or they rely on tissues or sprays to keep up with a constant runny and/or stuffy nose. Worst of all, many people feel annoyance or embarrassment in public because of their symptoms, preventing them from living life to the fullest

How RhinAer Works

Your ENT physician will first apply local anesthesia to numb the inside of your nose and make the treatment virtually painless. Your physician will then insert the small RhinAer wand into your nostril. Using low-temperature radiofrequency (RF) energy from its tip, RhinAer precisely targets and calms down the overactive nerves, helping to reduce the production and flow of unwanted mucus. RhinAer can also help shrink inflamed soft tissue in your nose to help relieve congestion. The best part? Once the treatment is done, you can get on with your regular day with minimal to no downtime.
