Herbal Remedies for Acute Rhinitis
Rhinitis is an inflammation of the nasal mucous membranes. It can be associated with an allergic reaction, for instance to pollen or dust mites, or a viral infection during colds or flu. If rhinitis becomes chronic, food allergies or a weakened immune system are often important factors.
For the acute phase, herbal immune stimulants, heat-clearing herbs for the upper mucous membranes, and herbs that are antimicrobial are often recommended.
