Rhinaer to Treat Chronic Rhinitis/Sinusitis
Is your runny nose treatment failing to provide adequate relief? For many chronic rhinitis or sinusitis sufferers, allergies cause the overproduction of mucus. While medications such as antihistamines can help, they may merely reduce symptoms. Other medications, such as decongestants or nasal steroid sprays, are also used to treat congestion. If a combination of medicines does not result in sufficient relief, sufferers may opt for alternative treatments.
Treating a runny nose or congestion with drugs is not a desirable option for every patient. In these cases, the patient may turn to a surgical procedure known as a turbinate reduction. This treatment option can help eliminate congestion, but often has little impact on chronic runny nose. An alternative treatment called Rhinaer is suitable for addressing all the symptoms of chronic rhinitis or sinusitis.
The procedure is carried out under local anesthetic by Dr. Levitin at his New York Sinusitis Treatment offices. Rhinaer is an alternative to a traditional treatment called vidian neurectomy, which involves cutting the vidian nerve. A vidian neurectomy is associated with a greater risk of side effects, such as dry eyes, headaches, nose bleeds and nasal crusting.
