Chronic Rhinitis

Chronic rhinitis is frequent inflammation of the nose with symptoms such as a runny nose, nasal congestion and post-nasal drip (mucus in the throat). But what causes it?

While the exact causes are unknown, out-of-balance nasal nerves play a contributing factor. The nerves in your nose transmit signals to your brain regulating all sorts of functions. When these nerves become hyperactive or out of balance, they send more signals than are necessary for the nose to perform its normal jobs, such as protecting the body from infectious agents. This can cause your nose to respond like it’s fighting an illness. The nasal linings will become inflamed (congestion) and mucus production will increase (runny nose), causing these annoying symptoms – even when you aren’t sick.

Normal Nasal Cavity

  • Nasal nerves help regulate the nasal activity
  • Turbinates warm and moisturize air as it flows through the nose
  • Normal mucus production helps protect against infectious agents

Chronic Rhinitis Nasal Cavity

  • Nasal nerves send too many signals
  • Inflamed turbinates contribute to congestion and stuffy nose
  • Excessive mucus can drip down the throat and cause runny nose
There are limited treatment options for the more than 24 million patients suffering from chronic rhinitis in the US alone.1,2 Many are unsatisfied with medical therapy, and 2.5 million are resistant to medical therapy1,2 altogether.

Medical treatments for chronic rhinitis, like nasal sprays, drops, pills and allergy shots, help manage frequent runny nose, congestion and post-nasal-drip symptoms; however:

  • They may require daily use
  • Symptoms can persist despite these treatments
  • Side effects may occur from prolonged usage, including nasal and throat dryness, nosebleeds and headaches 3,4

If treatments such as nasal sprays, drops and pills are not working for you, or you are looking for a solution that lasts longer without the side effects of medications,3, 4, 5 it’s time to try ClariFix®.
