Answer

The following are management options in allergic rhinitis that don’t involve medications:

  • Allergen-specific immunotherapy: The only form of therapy that can cure allergy symptoms; must be customized to the patient's individual allergies

  • Saline nasal irrigation: Effective in approximately 50% of patients with allergic rhinitis

  • Removal of the trigger, if identified
