Answer

Nasal features of allergic rhinitis can include the following:

  • Nasal crease: A horizontal crease across the lower half of the bridge of the nose; caused by repeated upward rubbing of the tip of the nose by the palm of the hand

  • Thin, watery nasal secretions

  • Deviation or perforation of the nasal septum: May be associated with chronic rhinitis, although there can be other, unrelated causes
