Allergic rhinitis should be referred to as a red flag for clinicians needing to implement early detection strategies and investigate ways of maintaining effective management

You will learn:

  • The importance of diagnosing and managing allergic rhinitis (AR) effectively, as lack of control leads to epithelial damage of the entire respiratory system
  • That AR patients often dismiss this condition during their visits to clinicians, seeking treatment for other symptoms such as lack of concentration, irritability, migraine, moderate depression and sleep disorders
  • That the chronic nature of AR requires regular treatment and continued healthcare practitioner support to adapt treatment and encourage adherence to medication
