Wheezing in the chest
Allergic rhinitis caused by pollen is a frequent disease. Symptoms of allergic rhinitis include nose, but can spread and affect eyes, ears, sinuses and lungs. The most common symptoms are nasal itching, runny nose and sneezing. Sensitive individuals name nasal congestion as the most frequent symptom, although some tend to indicate these sensations as a runny nose or excessive sneezing. In addition to nose symptoms, inhalation of airborne allergens may result in manifestation of signs of eye conjunctivitis, such as itchy eyes, watery eyes, etc. Persons can also complain about ear symptoms. Prolonged allergic rhinitis can disturb the respiratory function: sick persons snore, breath with their mouth open, have increased sinus pressure, and an itchy throat may turn into involuntary constant upper palate pressure.
Persons with allergic rhinitis must know that subsequent contacts with the allergen lead to increasingly severe reactions, signs continue longer, and long-term residual effects occur. For more information on symptoms, ask your doctor.
