Allergic Rhinitis in children represents a global health question for its high incidence, affecting 25 to 35% of the population
It could happen on a seasonal basis or year round. Allergic Rhinitis can affect your performance at school and generally interfere with your quality of life.
• Runny nose and nasal congestion
• Watery, itchy red eyes (allergic Conjunctivitis)
• Itchy nose, roof of mouth or throat
• Post-nasal drip
Nasal saline sprays wash allergens from the nasal passages and can be used alone in mild symptoms or just before other topical medications.
Studies have shown that nasal saline solutions in Allergic Rhinitis result in the improvement of symptoms and quality of life. They represent a safe, inexpensive form of treatment.
Research suggests that consumption of anti-allergic medication can also be decreased with regular use of saline nasal sprays.
