How can vasomotor rhinitis affect pregnancy?

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.

What can I take for a cold and runny nose during pregnancy?

Cold in pregnancy: Whether you are pregnant or not, there is no specific treatment for a common cold. The best you can do is symptomatic relief and minimize the duration of symptoms. Antihistamines such as Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Claritin are mostly category b, but decongestants such as sudafed and cough medicines such as Robitussin or Mucinex are mostly category c. Avoid category c. Try saline nasal rinsing, rest and fluids. ...Read more

Do you have to have runny nose, sneezing etc to have allergic rhinitis I don't have either except for a swollen turbinate & clear fluid in ears.

Rhinitis: Runny nose, sneezing/congestion are the cardinal symptoms of rhinitis, whether allergic or non-allergic. Swollen turbinates and clear fluid in ear (middle ears), are rather signs of inflamed nasal passages affecting middle ears drainage, yes you can have them without the classic symptoms in acute conditions, if long standing, better see an ENT for evaluation, good luck ...Read more

When I play my ps2, I get a stuffy / runny nose.  So is this vasomotor rhinitis?

Moms would like that: Don't think so. I think that in order to take down the bad guys you are forced to sit on the carpet or the sofa for long periods of time with exposure to house dust mites or pet dander. You more likely have perennial allergic rhinitis to house dust mites, dog dander or cat dander. ...Read more

Can allergic rhinitis cause frontal sinus pain? No discolored mucus just clear runny nose

Sinusitis can...: Perhaps, but it is still likely due to an occlusion of drainage of the sinus. Most sinusitis is not a bacterial infection without signs such as discolored nasal mucous, increasing sinus pain, possibly fever, and usually has been going on for at least a week. Sinusitis can still occur from allergies or viral infections, and can present with clear mucus. Try afrin nasal, decongestants. ...Read more

Have nasal congestion, runny nose and sneezing made worse when exposed to low temperature. Nose blocks after sneezing. Do I have nonallergic rhinitis?

Have nasal congestion, runny nose and sneezing made worse when exposed to low temperature. Nose blocks after sneezing. Do I have nonallergic rhinitis?

Possible: But in my experience, having sneezing spells (especially if you have eye symptoms) points more to allergic than non-allergic. Nonallergic rhinitis is a diagnosis of exclusion also since one needs to prove that allergies do not play a role. You may also have both allergic and non-allergic rhinitis as well. Try a nasal steroid spray ...Read more

Most mornings i wake up with a runny nose and very often have nasal congestion. No temperature & i feel fine. No known allergies. Vasomotor rhinitis?

Combination problems: Congestion after lying down is due to dilation of nasal tissues related to gravity. That said, if your septum was straight you probably wouldn't feel congested. Also, most people have at least mild allergies so when you say "no known" do you mean negative tests? It turns our there is a commin condition called "local allergic rhinitis" where the nose is allergic but tests are negative. See an ent. ...Read more
