What is Allergic Rhinitis?

Allergic rhinitis, commonly known as hay fever, is a condition characterized by inflammation of the nasal passages due to exposure to allergens such as pollen, dust mites, pet dander, or mold. It is an allergic reaction triggered by the immune system’s response to these allergens, resulting in symptoms such as sneezing, runny or stuffy nose, itching, and nasal congestion.
