Common Causes of Rhinitis

source: ACAAI


This is a useful table from The American College of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology (ACAAI) summarizing 3 different types of rhinitis - allergic, infectious and non-allergic. Not all rhinitis are due to allergies and the most common type is infectious rhinitis which is your typical colds and flu. What is non-allergic rhinitis? Click on the source link to read more about these 3 types of rhinitis.

ACAAI has very comprehensive information about allergies and asthma. I strongly encourage you to visit their website if you or your love ones suffer from any of these two problems.
