In brief: Absolutely!
Barometric pressure changes is a common trigger for nasal symptoms, or vasomotor rhinitis.
Other triggers for vasomotor rhinitis include sudden temperature changes, irritants like air fresheners/smoke, exercise, or cold air. Since traditional allergy pills do not work for vasomotor rhinitis, it is best to see a physician to get a prescription nasal spray for this type of trigger.
