Abstract

In order to prevent sensitization to a new allergen and the development of asthma, practitioners may consider allergen-specific immunotherapy in patients with allergic rhinitis. Additionally, in patients with severe allergic rhinitis refractory to medication, practitioners can also consider surgical management for improving the patients' nasal symptoms. However, there are still no practical guidelines regarding the indications for immunotherapy, the appropriate selection of the allergen, and the optimal duration of therapy. Moreover, no clear indications exist for surgical treatment. Pregnant or lactating women frequently complain of symptoms of rhinitis. However, due to the fear of potential complications to their babies, they avoid medical treatment despite significant discomfort. Therefore, we present 14 answers to core questions about immunotherapy, surgical treatment, and considerations for special circumstances, such as pregnancy and lactation.
