Are you among the millions of people in this country that suffer from one or more of these symptoms:

  • Frequent “stuffed up” feeling
  • Constant running nose
  • Persistent post-nasal drip/drainage
  • Frequent throat clearing with coughing or an “itchy” feeling
  • Excessive sneezing

You may be suffering from chronic rhinitis. Rhinitis simply means inflammation of the nose and can manifest with all of the above symptoms and more. It is a common but often undiagnosed condition. Among the variants of chronic rhinitis, one can have allergic rhinitis or nonallergic rhinitis. While chronic rhinitis does share some symptoms with seasonal allergies, its sufferers typically deal with these issues all year long.

Environmental irritants are common triggers of nonallergic rhinitis:

  • Cigarette smoke
  • Cleaning solutions
  • Cologne/Perfume
  • Hair spray
  • Laundry detergents

Some medications/drugs can also trigger non-allergic rhinitis:

  • NSAIDs -- nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin and ibuprofen
  • Oral contraceptives
  • Blood pressure medicines
  • Antidepressants
  • Drugs used to treat erectile dysfunction
  • Illegal drugs administered to the nose

Other contributors to rhinitis can include:

  • Spicy foods
  • Alcoholic beverages, especially beer and wine
  • Exercise

With all of these triggers, how is one to manage? Aside from avoiding your primary triggers, there is another option! For the millions of people suffering from chronic rhinitis, you can now get lasting relief with a single, minimally-invasive RhinAer treatment.

Dr. Jay Young, MD is an expert in the technique. Using low-temperature radiofrequency (RF) energy from its tip, RhinAer precisely targets and calms down the overactive nerves, helping to reduce the production and flow of unwanted mucus. RhinAer can also help shrink inflamed soft tissue in your nose to help relieve congestion.

Using a topical/local anesthetic, the procedure only takes approximately fifteen minutes. The procedure is virtually painless with minimal if any downtime.  Additionally, most health insurance plans cover the procedure.

Why suffer from chronic rhinitis symptoms, when there is an easy, simple procedure to address? Dr. Young was one of the first surgeons in South Florida to offer this innovative procedure. To see if you are a candidate for this or other procedures to improve your breathing, you can request a consultation with Dr. Young, the minimally invasive expert.
