Rhinitis is an inflammation of the nasal passages that is most often caused by allergies or respiratory infections. You may have a runny or stuffy nose. You may also have itchy eyes, ears, and throat.
If allergies are the cause, your doctor may do tests to find out what you are allergic to. You may be able to relieve your symptoms if you avoid the things that cause them. Your doctor may suggest or prescribe medicine to ease your symptoms.
