    Question What is the difference between Allergic Rhinitis and Vasomotor Rhintitis?

    I was doing some research and came upon Vasomotor Rhinitis and while reading it, it had a lot of symptoms that I had. It is nonallergic Rhinitis which I guess means you have no allergies what so ever but your nose is just really sensitive.


    What is the exact difference between the two? How do I know which one I have. I've had allergy test done before and I am getting one next month and I am allergic to a a bunch of things, does this automatically mean I have allergic rhinitis?

    Humm..

    Not exactly.

    Vasomotor rhinitis is an allergy to irritants and your environment(pressure changes as storm fronts pass and such). In particular, pollutants like smoke, exhaust, chemicals floating about in the air.

    Allergic rhinitis is an allergy response to pollens, mold spores and allergic danders. This is a response to testable allergens.

    My allergist gave me a definition I found cute. Vasomotor rhinitis is a nasal response allergic reaction anything we can not test for and identify. It is the allergic reaction to the unknown.

    Many allergy sufferers have both vasomotor rhinitis and allergic rhinitis.. determining which one is kicking you in the head can be tricky. If you enter a room full of smoke.. maybe Vaso. Trapped in smog and traffic maybe vaso and allergic rhinitis. Weather shits and you are in a clean environment.. vaso. Running through wild flowers in a park.. allergic rhinitis. Allergies are not exact and since vasomotor rhinitis is an allergic response, just not to identifiable allergens, you can treat it as such. Zrytec and Nasonex with Singular are the best combinations I have found. Also using saline nasal spay before application of the Nasonex and ponaris nasal oil after the nasonex I have noticed an dramatic difference in my nasal sensitive to all but the weather change response.

    Sincerely,
    MG

    I was misdiagnosed with allergic rhinitis and for years received allergic injections. Moved and went to a new allergist only to be told that I have vasomotor rhinitis. Your dr. should be able to tell you if you have one or the other. The first man I went to misdiagnosed me!!! What else is new?!!!!!!

    Sometimes local pharmacies have it (or can order it for you). You can also buy it online - FYI, it's not a spray, it's actually more like drops.

    Thanks for the response about ponoris; I will look for it in the pharmacy. Do you know if it all natural or is there a medical component to it.

    It's natural - a combination of several different fragrant oils.

    When the weather changes, it makes me weak and I feel like a wet rag with my vasomotor. Does anyone else go through this?
