Practical Points

  • Allergen-specific immunotherapy is the only disease modifying treatment in allergic rhinitis

  • Immunotherapy improves comorbid conditions, such as asthma and conjunctivitis

  • Skin prick test is the primary test to determine whether rhinitis is allergic or non-allergic

  • Skin prick test has a high negative predictive value
