Abstract

In most patients with rhinitis, careful history taking and physical examination elicit the correct diagnosis. A combination of appropriate environmental and pharmacologic measures is usually effective. Treatment directed at the underlying cause relieves symptoms and improves quality of life. For patients who are unresponsive to treatment, referral to an allergist should be considered. More extensive evaluation and diagnostic testing may reveal previously unrecognized causes of rhinitis.
