Allergic rhinitis is an atopic disease. Atopic allergy is a type-1 hypersensitivity reaction which produces IgE antibodies to allergens viz. pollen, dust, etc. In Ayurveda direct reference of allergic rhinitis is not available, but concept of allergy is scientifically explained under 'Asatmyaja Vyadhi' while its effects are explained in context of hereditary, Viruddhahara, Dushivisha and Ritu Sandhi. Various types of Pratishyaya are explained clearly in all samhitas. However, symptoms of Vataja pratishyaya like Tanu Nasa Srava, Shirashoola, Kshavathu etc. more related with symptoms of allergic rhinitis.
