Callie Fletcher, APN, on Allergic Rhinitis

As we all know (and many of us are experiencing), allergy season is upon us. What are some common allergies this time of year?

If you sneeze a lot, if your nose is often runny or stuffy, or if your eyes, mouth or skin often feels itchy, you may have allergic rhinitis, a condition that affects 40 million to 60 million Americans. Allergic rhinitis, like skin rashes and other allergies, develops when the body’s immune system becomes sensitized and overreacts to something in the environment that typically causes no problem in most people.
