This aids in easing breathing by reducing the inflammation of the airway. Allergic rhinitis is also known as hay fever. It is a condition of inflammation or swelling inside your nose due to an allergen. The symptoms of allergic rhinitis include runny & stuffy nose, blockage in airways, sneezing, itching, watery eyes and other allergic symptoms.
