What are the treatment options for rhinitis?

The treatments for rhinitis vary because of the different causes of the condition. Most cases of rhinitis are treated with medications like decongestants, antihistamines, antibiotics, and nasal sprays, though some of these treatments are only effective on specific kinds of rhinitis. Allergy shots may help provide allergy relief and prevent allergic rhinitis. Nasal irrigation is a simple treatment that doesn't involve medications; it is a process where you flush out the mucus in your sinuses with a saltwater solution, which effectively relieves congestion. Sometimes surgery can help relieve chronic rhinitis. Talk to your Doctor regarding treatment options.
