Have Medical Questions? Ask a Doctor Online!
Hello from JustAnswer.
Have you tried any nasal sprays for this?
Have you had any evaluation thus far?
The system will automatically ask whether you want a subscription or additional services, but it is fine to simply continue discussion in this forum.
However, to give you a complete answer, it will help if you could provide the additional information that I requested.
I had asked for some further information and have not heard back.
The symptom is typically due to inflammation of the nose, or rhinitis, but there are several possible causes of rhinitis. It is possible to have exercise-induced allergic rhinitis, but there frequently are other symptoms of allergies present. There also are several types of non-allergic inflammation that can be worse from increased activity.
There are some interventions that can help both allergic and non-allergic rhinitis, particularly steroid nasal sprays or Atrovent NS. There are several different steroid nasal sprays on the market, including a couple that are available over the counter, such as Nasacort. There also are some interventions that are specific for allergies, such as allergy desensitization shots. So, if there has not yet been an evaluation by an Allergist, that would be a reasonable step.
If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.
