Can catarrh be prevented?

Catarrh can be prevented by avoiding triggers for irritation. Take care to avoid ingesting pathogens by washing your hands to prevent colds. Avoid allergic reactions by taking allergy medication around known triggers and during troublesome times of year. For non-allergic rhinitis, take care around triggers like polluted areas and smoke. You can lessen nasal polyps through steroid nasal spray.
