Based on the presenting symptoms a clinical diagnosis of allergic rhinitis is appropriate for R.B. Allergy rhinitis is made clinically on the basis of characteristic symptoms and can be treated with antihistamine or glucocorticoid. On the basis of evidence, a sensitization skin test will measure the presence of allergen-specific IgE in the blood serum (Wheatley & Togias, 2015). Differential Diagnoses:Non-allergic rhinitis: Although non-allergic rhinitis accounts for approximately 25% of all forms of allergic rhinitis; however, studies have suggested that non-allergy rhinitis is misunderstood and the analytical description is often limited to exclusion of an allergic sensitization. (Poddighe, Gelardi, Licari, Del Giudice & Marseglia, 2016).
