Rhinitis clearly is one of the most frequent problems encountered in the outpatient practice of medicine. It is the most common IgE-mediated disease. In its allergic form, it affects approx 25 million Americans. The chronic nonallergic form afflicts at least five million more. The illness accounts for over 3.5 million lost workdays.
