Bismillah … I am suffering from allergic rhinitis, whereas from my family there is no history of the disease. Is the disease contagious? How to treat Rhinitis using BioNase Rhinitis (this tool uses infrared) which is sold online is it recommended?

1 Answer:

Hello. Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com


Allergic rhinitis is inflammation that occurs in the nasal cavity due to allergic reactions. Symptoms in this condition usually arise immediately after a person is exposed to allergens (allergens) and can appear prolonged, especially if the allergen persists. Some of the symptoms include: runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, itchy or watery eyes, fatigue, and coughing.


The main cause is the reaction of the immune system to trigger allergies where the immune system, which considers a substance as a dangerous substance, then releases inflammatory compounds into the blood. These reactions can trigger swelling and irritation in the nose and excessive nasal fluid production. This is triggered by the triggering factors including:

Heredity. The risk of someone experiencing allergic rhinitis will increase if parents or siblings also have the same condition.
Have other types of allergies, such as asthma.
Exposure from the environment. For example, furniture craftsmen are constantly exposed to wood dust.
Exposure to cigarette smoke. Infants who are exposed to secondhand smoke have a risk of developing allergic rhinitis later in life.

Regarding the infrared device mentioned there are two studies that describe the effectiveness of the tool to reduce inflammatory reactions. But there is no specific research to be used in Indonesian society so for further treatment and examination control should be done to the ENT specialist doctor.


Thus the information we can convey. May be useful. Thank you
