Allergic rhinoconjunctivitis

Allergic rhinoconjunctivitis is an IgE-mediated inflammation of the nasal mucosa and conjunctiva of the eye. A distinction is made between seasonal allergic rhinoconjunctivitis, known as hay fever (pollen allergy) and perennial allergic rhinoconjunctivitis, which is caused by allergens that occur throughout the year (e.g. house dust mites, molds, animal epithelia, etc.). Typical symptoms are sneezing attacks, runny nose, scratching in the mouth and throat as well as watery, red eyes and itchy eyelids.

Accompanying diseases of allergic rhinoconjunctivitis can be very diverse (e.g. bronchial asthma, allergic conjunctivitis, food allergies) and often greatly impair the patient’s quality of life and performance.
