Allergic rhinitis (AR), the most common immunological disease, remains under recognised and poorly managed with an under-appreciated socioeconomic impact.AR and chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS) impacts quality of life (QoL) not only because of the physical discomfort, but also because of the associated detrimental effects on the psychological and social aspects of patients' lives, such as interference with intellectual performance and productivity at work and school.

During the allergy season, people with AR show declines in cognitive processing, psychomotor speed, verbal learning and memory, in addition to sleep deficits and an increased risk of traffic accidents. These undermine an individual’s QoL, particularly when the AR is untreated or poorly managed.

In these resources we provide guidance and advice on diagnosis, lifestyle and treatment options to mitigate symptoms and improve quality of life and asthma control for people with allergic rhinitis and chronic rhinosinusitis.
