Vasomotor rhinitis is a chronic nasal condition characterized by persistent nasal congestion without the presence of allergies or sinus infections. While its precise cause is not fully understood, this condition can significantly impact the quality of life for those affected. We provide more details about this condition below.

Symptoms of Vasomotor Rhinitis

Symptoms include nasal obstruction, postnasal drip, a sensation of congestion, and sometimes difficulty breathing through the nose.

These symptoms can vary in severity and may worsen in response to certain triggers, such as weather changes, strong fragrances, or changes in air temperature.

What Causes Vasomotor Rhinitis?

The precise causes of vasomotor rhinitis are still under investigation. It is often believed that this condition results from an abnormal response of the autonomic nervous system.

Treatment generally focuses on relieving symptoms and improving the quality of life. Treatment options may include:

Medications:

Medications such as antihistamines, nasal steroids, or decongestant sprays may be prescribed to alleviate symptoms.

Non-Pharmacological Approaches:

Non-drug strategies, such as nasal irrigation with saline solution or the use of humidifiers, can help relieve nasal congestion.

Antidepressant Therapy:

In some cases, tricyclic antidepressants or selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors may be prescribed to reduce symptoms.

Difference between Vasomotor Rhinitis and Other Types of Rhinitis:

The main difference between vasomotor rhinitis and other types of rhinitis, such as allergic rhinitis or infectious rhinitis, lies in the absence of allergens or infections as an underlying cause.

While allergic rhinitis is related to an immune system response to specific allergens and infectious rhinitis to viral or bacterial infections, vasomotor rhinitis lacks these characteristics.

Risk Factors:

The risk factors associated with vasomotor rhinitis are not fully defined. However, susceptibility to this condition may be related to hormonal changes, genetic factors, stress, or exposure to environmental irritants.

In summary, vasomotor rhinitis is a chronic nasal condition that causes congestion and other symptoms. If you relate to what we’ve just described, seek help from a professional to regain your quality of life.

Don't resign yourself to living with constant nasal congestion. Schedule an appointment with Dr. Lech and reclaim your quality of life.
