Allergic rhinitis is a global health problem with considerable socio-economic and personal health burden. Treatment of allergic rhinitis needs careful evaluation of comorbid conditions whilst ensuring sound symptom control. Wariness of perceived side effects, incomplete assessment and underestimation of disease impact, may all lead to under-treatment and needless suffering on part of the patient. This article examines the evidence base for treating allergic rhinitis in the most commonly encountered special conditions and makes recommendation for treatment based on up-to-date literature evidence.
