The social and economic burden of allergic rhinitis (AR) is increasing, with significant effects on the quality of life of patients suffering from AR. Therefore, physicians require evidence-based guidelines regarding the diagnosis, differential diagnosis and proper management management of patients with AR. The Korean Academy of Asthma, Allergy and Clinical Immunology developed new clinical guidelines for the appropriate management of AR, especially in Korean patients. For the core questions (i.e. questions that most practitioners were curious about), several experts in the field of allergology, pediatrics, and otorhinolaryngology developed a set of practical guidelines based on a systematic review of the literature. Furthermore, we determined the level of evidence associated with the recommendations for each answer. In this article, we suggest 15 answers for core questions about the medical treatment of AR.
