The article focuses on the clinical management of a patient with intermittent allergic rhinitis. It states that a patient who shows symptoms of allergic rhinitis should undergo skin prick testing for the allergens and may use endoscopy as well as computed tomography. It mentions that allergen immunotherapy offers long-term modulatory treatment for allergic rhinitis. It adds that reaction to allergens or birch/ragweed-food syndrome can prolong allergic rhinitis.
