Syndrome of an inflammation of a mucous membrane of a nose.
Rhinitis – an inflammation of tissues of nose, first of all, a mucous membrane. In life rhinitis often is called cold. Rhinitis can be acute and chronic. Acute cold is more often observed at an acute respiratory viral infection or an allergic attack. Catarrhal cold can be combined with temperature increase, a headache and other symptoms of a viral disease. Overcooling provokes an exacerbation of a viral infection and rhinitis as freezing is followed by narrowing of blood vessels of a nasal cavity and, therefore, local oppression of protective function of blood. For confirmation of this common truth in England even the direct experiment with healthy volunteers which confirmed dependence of frequency of catarrhal cold on extent of cooling of legs was made.
Similar lines, except for atrophic rhinitis have all forms of rhinitis. Catarral rhinitis, and also vasculomotor rhinitis are characterized by puffiness of a mucous membrane of a nose, penetration into it of inflammatory liquid and protective blood cells. At hypertrophic rhinitis these processes are aggravated with growth of deeper layers, up to bone. But at atrophic rhinitis other picture is observed absolutely: the special cells producing slime disappear or sharply change the structure, the number of capillaries decreases. At fetid rhinitis these not numerous vessels are corked, and bone structures of a nose are replaced with more soft tissues.
Infectious rhinitis is caused by various microbes and viruses; development of rhinitis is promoted by overcooling, strong dust content and a gas contamination of air. Rhinitis — a frequent symptom of other diseases (for example, flu, diphtheria, measles, etc.).
Treatment of Rhinitis:
Treatment of rhinitis is defined by its form and weight. The family of rhinitises is extensive, the symptomatology is various therefore self-treatment is inadmissible.
