Allergic Rhinitis or commonly known as ‘sinus’ in Singapore, refers to inflammation of the nose due to a hypersensitivity reaction to an allergen. The most common allergen in Singapore is house dust mites. Others include dog or cat dander, grass, and mold.  Sometimes food such as eggs, milk and peanuts are responsible too.


The cardinal symptoms are block nose, sneezing, runny nose, and nasal itch. It may be associated with eczema, asthma and allergic conjunctivitis .


Treatments are individualized. Our doctors believe in patient education and empowerment to achieve the best outcome.  Depending on the chief complaint, some patients can be cured too.
