Good Day Doc,

My doctor told me that i have Rhinnitis, unfortunately i forgot to ask what is it and if it is curable and whats the cause.
Please tell me what this is and which medications can i try to get rid of this and what is causing it. He prescribes Nasonex nasal spray only which has not helped yet.

Is this somthing to worry about or to ignore it

Worried, rhinitis is inflammation/infection of the nasal mucous membrane. In your case it sounds like your doctor suspects it is due to an allergy. Good luck.
