Does it feel like your nose runs or feels stuffed up almost every single day? Or do you have what feels like constant post-nasal drip, congestion, nasal/throat itching, and sneezing? If so, you may be one of the millions of people with chronic rhinitis, a common but often undiagnosed condition. While chronic rhinitis does share some symptoms with seasonal allergies, its sufferers typically deal with these issues all year long.
For many patients, chronic rhinitis may be caused by abnormal or overactive nerve signals in the nose. The signals can cause mucus creation to go into overdrive, creating a near-constant runny, stuffy nose and/or post-nasal drip.
While not life-threatening, chronic rhinitis can seriously impact your quality of life. Sufferers feel dependent on medications that often only deliver temporary relief, or they rely on tissues or sprays to keep up with a constant runny and/or stuffy nose. Worst of all, many people feel annoyance or embarrassment in public because of their symptoms, preventing them from living life to the fullest.
Not sure if you have chronic rhinitis? Try this quick assessment.
For many chronic rhinitis sufferers, daily medications and coping behaviors have been the only way to get fleeting relief - and 49% of sufferers say these medications just don’t do enough.1 Thankfully, if you are one of the millions of people silently suffering from chronic rhinitis, you can now get lasting relief with a single, non-invasive RhinAer treatment performed right in your doctor’s office. The bonus: RhinAer is designed to treat both your runny nose AND your congestion, so it’s almost like getting two treatments in one visit.
Your ENT physician will first apply local anesthesia to numb the inside of your nose and make the treatment virtually painless. Your physician will then insert the small RhinAer wand into your nostril. Using low-temperature radiofrequency (RF) energy from its tip, RhinAer precisely targets and calms down the overactive nerves, helping to reduce the production and flow of unwanted mucus. RhinAer can also help shrink inflamed soft tissue in your nose to help relieve congestion. The best part? Once the treatment is done, you can get on with your regular day with minimal to no downtime.*
RhinAer substantially reduces symptoms so patients can get back to living a normal life without constant dependency on medications, tissues, and sprays. In a multi-center clinical study, patients treated with RhinAer were consistently satisfied with the results and showed significant improvements in the following:2
On average, RhinAer patients experienced a nearly 60% improvement in their chronic rhinitis symptoms.2
