Allergic Rhinitis: Symptoms, Treatment & Prevention

Allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever, is a common condition that affects millions of people every year. It is caused by an allergic reaction to things like pollen, dust mites, pet dander, and other allergens that are present in the air. Allergic rhinitis can cause symptoms like a runny nose, sneezing, itching eyes, and congestion, which can make it difficult to breathe and sleep.

Here's what you need to know about allergic rhinitis, including its symptoms, treatment, and prevention:
