Hours & Directions

Allergic Rhinitis is characterized by nasal swelling or congestion, sneezing, itching and a clear watery nasal discharge. Severe symptoms can cause difficulty smelling all but the strongest odors. Other conditions that masquerade as allergy include chronic sinus infection and nasal polyps. Symptoms may occur only in the spring if you are allergic to grass or tree pollen, or the fall if you are allergic to weed pollen. Year-round symptoms occur with allergy to indoor allergens, which includes animal dander, dust mites, insects and molds. New research has has found an association of chronic nasal congestion with silent acid reflux as well as other disorders of the ears and throat. Complications of allergic rhinitis include chronic sinus infection and dark circles under the eyes called "allergic shiners".
