Nasal congestions, which are common, can block ear’s eustachian tubes, resulting in hearing problems, especially in children.

Allergic rhinitis may be complicated by nasal polyps and sinusitis.

    Yes, Jane-this is great herbal remedy. I like all natural. Actually, i have sometimes rhinitis, caused by dust, water, and spring blossoming. Rhinocort is working very well for me, but not so safe. So, i like more natural. Also, i can’t tolerant different sprays(body and house). I keep everything clean without using them. Never use creams also-many of them contain chemicals, (as well as odors), which are not beneficial for allergies , as well they are peneprating through the skin and can cause other medical problems. Thank you for you advice-i will try remedy you mentioned.
