Pediatric Allergic Rhinitis

What You Need to Know

Rhinitis is a reaction that happens in the eyes, nose and throat. It occurs when allergens in the air trigger the release of histamine in the body.

Key Symptoms

Common symptoms may include sneezing, stuffy nose, runny nose, or other symptoms.


During a physical exam, your child’s provider may find dark circles under the eyes, creases under the eyes or swollen tissue inside the nose.


Treatment choices may include antihistamines, nose sprays, decongestants or other treatments.
