Allergic rhinitis is a very common condition and affects up to 20 per cent of the UK population. It is caused by an overactive immune system which incorrectly interprets allergens as a threat to the body. The most common allergens that activate the condition include pollen, dust mites and animal dander. The immune response system releases histamine to try and kill them off, as though it were fighting an infection. The release of histamine in allergic rhinitis produces unwanted symptoms, due to an increased blood flow to the nasal passages causing inflammation. The nose may become blocked, runny or itchy.
Anyone can develop allergic rhinitis throughout their lives and there is no cure. Those with the condition can be more likely to develop other health problems; such as sinusitis, nasal polyps and middle ear infections. It can also cause trouble sleeping and may disrupt day-to-day activities. If at all possible, those with allergic rhinitis should try and avoid the allergens that trigger their symptoms. Regular nasal cleaning, using a salt water solution, can help ease symptoms by removing any allergens lodged in the nasal passages.
The symptoms of allergic rhinitis can be managed with antihistamine treatments. Levocetirizine dihydrochloride is the active ingredient in Xyzal medication and eases symptoms by blocking histamine receptors. This stops the release of other allergy fighting chemicals and prevents the increase in blood flow to the affected area; in doing so it minimises the immune system’s reaction and the frustrating symptoms it causes.
