Hay Fever / Nasal Conditions

Allergic rhinitis occurs when the immune system attacks a harmless substance, like the pollen in the picture below.

We see 4 main types of nasal conditions at KCAA:

Allergic rhinitis

Commonly called hay fever, this condition has cold-like symptoms. Sufferers may experience runny nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes. Allergic rhinitis occurs when the immune system attacks a harmless substance, like pollen. It can also be triggered by pet dander, mold, dust mite droppings, and cockroach particles. Symptoms can also occur due to smoke, strong odors, and changes in temperature and humidity.

Nasal congestion

A stuffy nose can have many different causes, ranging from allergies to sinus problems to the common cold. The proper diagnosis from an allergist can help you feel better faster.

Snoring

This noisy sleep habit happens when breathing is partly obstructed. As many as half of all adults snore at some point. Anatomy, alcohol consumption, allergies, a cold, and weight can all contribute to snoring.

Non-allergic rhinitis

About a third of people with hay fever symptoms don’t have allergies. They have non-allergic rhinitis, or a sensitive nose. This usually affects adults and can cause symptoms like a runny nose and nasal congestion year-round.
