Dealing with a sensitive nose
GARY’S daughter Ashley has been suffering from a sensitive nose since she was young. As a parent, he worries as Ashley doesn’t seem to be getting any better even though she is now 14 years old. Her condition is worse in the morning when she would sneeze continuously and rub her eyes, until they become sore. Ashley’s condition affects her sleep too. As a result, she finds herself unable to focus on her studies. Even though Gary has brought his daughter to a few doctors, Ashley’s sensitive nose conditions have not improved even after a few courses of medication.
Although most people recognise they have a sensitive nose issue, what they do not realise is, symptoms such as a sneezing frenzy, runny or blocked nose point to a hypersensitive immune system. Medically, this condition is known as allergic rhinitis.
