Allergic Rhinitis

Marshall Plaut, Martin D. Valentine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A Baltimore college student has rhinorrhea, sneezing, nasal congestion, and itchy, watery eyes in the spring. He reports having had similar symptoms the previous spring. Over-the-counter allergy pills have failed to help his symptoms and caused dry mouth and somnolence. He wants relief and assurance that he will not be ill, have dry mouth, or feel drowsy during final examinations. On physical examination, his conjunctivae are injected, and his nasal mucous membranes are pale, wet, and boggy. What are your recommendations?
