What increases my risk for rhinitis?

Your risk for rhinitis depends on a number of factors as well as the kind of rhinitis in question. Rhinitis can affect many different groups of people, men and women, the old and the young. For instance, males are more prone to allergic rhinitis, and women are more prone to nonallergic rhinitis. Allergies, asthma, advanced age, exposure to irritants like cigarette smoke, pollution, and toxins, medical conditions that compromise the immune system, and other chronic illnesses like lupus all put you at higher risk for various forms of rhinitis.
