Diagnosis and Treatment of Allergic Rhinitis

Sneezing, congestion, itchy nose, and sore throat are all symptoms of allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever. Allergy rhinitis symptoms can be triggered by pollen, pet dander, mould, and insects. Allergic rhinitis can be debilitating. Patients with allergic rhinitis are usually treated with lifestyle changes, allergy medications, and immunotherapy (allergy vaccines) by our surgeon, Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ. The treatment is determined at this point based on the patient's condition and the disease.


What is Allergic Rhinitis (Hay Fever)?

Allergic rhinitis (hay fever) is a reaction to small particles in the air called allergens, which our surgeon, Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ, and her team have been treating for many years. When you inhale allergens through your nose or mouth, your body reacts by releasing histamine, a natural chemical. Hay fever is caused by a variety of internal and external allergens. Dust mites, mould, pet dander, and pollen from trees and plants are all common causes. Sneezing, nasal congestion, and irritation of the nose, throat, mouth, and eyes are all symptoms of hay fever. Infectious rhinitis, also known as the common cold, is not the same as allergic rhinitis. Hay fever is not spreadable. If you suspect you have this condition, our surgeon, Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ, and other specialists can examine you.


What to Expect After Surgery?

Swelling and discoloration around the cut area are to be expected. Some pain is normal after surgery, but if it does not go away or gets worse, it could be an indication of infection or bleeding. There will be some numbness in the area where the surgery is performed. Within 7 days, the majority of patients are able to return to work or school. However, at this point, you should follow our surgeon's advice, Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ, and keep in mind that the situation may vary depending on the patient. To prevent bleeding, avoid strenuous activity, exercise, lifting more than 10 pounds, or bending excessively for the first two weeks after surgery.


When Do People Usually Get Allergic Rhinitis?

According to the general opinion in the medical community and the patients who apply to the Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ clinic, you can have hay fever at any time of the year. Seasonal allergies are more common in spring, summer, and early fall when trees and weeds are in bloom and pollen counts are higher. But chronic allergies can happen year-round. They are caused by irritants that are always around, such as pet dander, cockroaches, and dust mites. At this point, the effect of pets is particularly striking. If you think that you may be affected by your animal friend, you can seek a solution by consulting Operator Doctor Nazlı EKŞİ and her team.
