The 2017 update of the BSACI guidance on diagnosis and management of rhinitis. Includes a useful treatment algorithm and indications for ENT referral

In the UK, an estimated 26% of adults have rhinitis. This condition affects quality of life and work attendance, and its prevalence has increased over the past 4–5 decades. Rhinitis is a risk factor for the development of asthma—80% of asthma patients will have both asthma and rhinitis, and the poor control of concomitant rhinitis is a risk factor for asthma exacerbations.

This updated Guidelines for Nurses summary provides recommendations on diagnosis, investigations, and non-pharmacological and pharmacological therapies. Includes a concise treatment algorithm.
