Neurosurgeon/ENT: You probably won't be able to get this to stop on it's own. You should see a neurosurgeon and/or ENT surgeon who can help you with this leak. It will probably have to be repaired surgically.

How can vasomotor rhinitis affect pregnancy?

2 doctor answers9 doctors weighed in
Dr. Phil Zapanta
ENT and Head and Neck Surgery 21 years experience
Rhinitis can worsen: Pregnancy can make rhinitis symptoms worse. Pregnancy will cause the nasal lining to be more even more edematous and mucus will increase. This is why some moms state they are more congested and have runny noses during pregnancy and are fine after they deliver. A safe way to treat this is with saline nasal sprays and irrigation. If it really bothers you, you should talk to your OB and ent.

Is there is any difference between chronic sinusitis and chronic rhinitis?

Yes: Chronic rhinitis is chronic drainage from the nose. It can be caused by allergy or a chronic sinus infection. It can also occur without allergy or a sinus infection. A chronic sinus infection is chronic inflammation of the sinuses which in turn may cause chronic rhinitis.

Can you explain the difference between vasomotor rhinitis and allergies?

2 doctor answers8 doctors weighed in
Dr. Alex Martinez
Specializes in Allergy
Allergy vs irritant: Allergic rhinitis is an allergic response to pollen, molds, & pet dander; this requires sensitization (prior exposure) and subsequent production of allergic antibodies (called ige). Vasomotor rhinitis is due to irritation; 'vaso' means blood vessel while 'motor' implies something causes the vessels to react, typically irritants like smoke & dust. Skin testing is negative with vasomotor rhinitis.

Can I have any medicine for rhinitis? And why in uk they keep calling hay ferver? I'm pregnant

Meds with Pregnancy: Because you are pregnant, the medications you can take are limited. The worry is that some medications may harm the developing fetus. Hayfever is a term used to denote nasal allergy, and doesn't have any fever associated with it. Discuss any medications with your doctor and do not self medicate yourself.

Saline nasal spray can be helpful. Afrin for several days can be effective and is safe.

Asthma?: A cough may be due to your allergic rhinitis because of post nasal drip, but could also be due to asthma which is frequently a complication of allergy. Even if you have allergic rhinitis, your cough could be due to other causes like acid reflux, even if you do not have heartburn. Best to see you doctor or a board certified allergist.
