Vasomotor: This may well be a case of vasomotor or perennial rhinitis and this does not have an allergic basis. It is often related to changes in temperature or humidity,dust,certain foods, hot soup, for example. Nasal biopsy is performed to look for disorders like Wegener's granulomatosis or other nasal pathology.
