In brief: Target the cause

Allergic rhinitis is most commonly due to sensitization to pollens (tree, grass or weeds), animal dander, or dust mite; and even some indoor sensitizers like cockroach, mouse or fungi.
Allergy shots are particularly helpful in many cases. Treatment (several routes exist for optimized combination therapy) and proper avoidance strategies depend on cause.
