Synopsis

Vasomotor rhinitis is nasal congestion due to blood flow abnormalities in the nose that cause inflammation of nasal mucous membranes. Vasomotor rhinitis has been considered a form of nonallergic rhinitis aroused by triggers to the autonomic system. Common signs and symptoms include clear nasal drainage, nasal obstruction, postnasal drip, and rhinorrhea. Management consists of eliminating triggers, such as environmental irritants, temperature changes, and cigarette smoke. Additional interventions involve treating the symptoms and include topical corticosteroids, anticholinergics, and antihistamines.
