You are experiencing what’s called Rhinitis, and when your symptoms occur frequently, it’s known as Chronic Rhinitis. Rhinitis symptoms are caused by inflammation of the mucous membranes in your nose, and the inflammation can be triggered by allergic and non-allergic sources.
Allergic Rhinitis is commonly known as hay fever and results from non-infectious agents such as plant pollens, molds, dust mites, and animal dander. When you have a sensitivity to these allergens, your immune system responds by releasing chemicals that dilate blood vessels in your nose causing swollen membranes, sneezing, and congestion. Additional symptoms can include itchy eyes, nose or throat.
Non-Allergic Rhinitis, also called vasomotor rhinitis, doesn’t involve your immune system. The exact cause of non-allergic rhinitis is unknown, but the results are similar to allergic rhinitis: blood vessels in your nose expand filling your nasal membranes with blood and fluid. Triggers for non-allergic rhinitis can be irritants like strong odors, chemical fumes and pollution, changes in the weather (especially coldness), cigarette smoke, foods and beverages, certain medications, hormone changes and underlying health problems.
But whatever triggers your Chronic Rhinitis, the result is the same - you get a runny nose and congestion!
Are you one of more than 24 million people in the U.S. who suffer with Chronic Rhinitis?
If you are, and treatment sprays, drops and pills have failed to relieve your frustrating runny nose, we have good news for you! Dallas ENT specialist, Dr. Rajiv Pandit is one of the selected physicians in the country that can offer you a new and innovative treatment option performed right in the office.
It’s called ClariFix® Cryotherapy.
ClariFix® takes a different approach to treating Chronic Rhinitis. By using cryotherapy to cool your inflamed nasal tissue and the underlying nerves, you get long-term relief from a brief, convenient procedure that works.
In a clinical study, 4 out of 5 people reported long-lasting reduction in runny nose and congestion with ClariFix®.
ClariFix® is clinically-proven, minimally invasive and is a safe, effective procedure that takes less than 30 minutes to treat Chronic Rhinitis. A small handheld device is placed in your nose endoscopically and uses a cryotherapy balloon to quickly freeze a small area that is often responsible for your frustrating nasal symptoms.
