Anaphylaxis can be described as an acute hypersensitivity reaction, provoked by some sort of agent. It can also be described as a severe allergic reaction. Allergic Rhinitis is the manifestation of an allergic reaction in the nasal passages when a person breathes in an agent he or she is allergic to.
Common agents include dust, animal dander, and pollen, and common symptoms include inflammation of nasal passages, itchy, runny nose, itchy, watery eyes, headache, and dark circles or puffiness around the eyes. Anaphylactic Rhinitis would therefore imply an acute case of allergic rhinitis, which could prove fatal if severe enough and not treated properly.
Avoiding the allergen is the best possible way to prevent Allergic and Anaphylactic Rhinitis, but Antihistamines, Decongestants, Leukotriene inhibitors (which block the symptom causing chemicals the body naturally releases), and for more severe cases, allergy shots are recommended.
