Causes of Allergic Rhinitis
Allergic Rhinitis can occur at any age. However it is commonly seen in childhood and early adulthood. If you have a parent or sibling suffering from allergy or asthma then you are at increased risk of developing allergic rhinitis. Heredity seems to play a major role in allergic diseases.
The Immune System’s role Immune system protects our body against infectious organisms and diseases. Sometimes the immune system overreacts to substances which are normally harmless to most individuals. When the immune system is triggered it releases chemicals, such as histamine, into your blood stream which leads to allergic symptoms.
