Allergic Rhinoconjunctivitis (Children and Adults)

Allergic rhinoconjunctivitis (commonly known as Hay Fever) affects approximately 1 in 5 people in Australia. It is an allergic condition of upper airways causing sneezing, runny/itchy or congested/blocked nose, and itchy/watery eyes and can affect day to day functioning and quality of life and sleep. This condition affects children as well as adults.

Some of the symptoms of allergic rhinoconjunctivitis may be similar to those caused by common colds and winter flu viruses, However, it does not cause fever/high temperature. It is caused by allergy to the environmental allergens, such as dust mites, pollens (grasses, weeds or trees), moulds and animal hair.

Our doctors provide assessment and treatment of allergic Rhinitis/Rhinoconjuctivitis including immunotherapy (desensitisation).
