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 «SQ»Asatmyaja Vyadhi«SQ» 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. In the present study, patients of allergic rhinitis are evaluated on the basis of general evaluaton scale consisting parameters like nasal obstruction, sneezing, itching etc. Total 69 patients were selected and randomly divided into 3 groups viz : 1) Shunthi tail Nasya for 14 days, followed by internal drug Sudha Haridra 2 gms TDS. for 21days; 2) Pradhamana Nasya with Katphal churna till samayaka shuddhi lakshana obtained ,followed by internal drug Shuddha Haridra 2 gms TDS for 21days; 3) Only oral drug Sudha Haridra 2 gms TDS for 21 days. It was observed that symptoms like sneezing, rhinohorrea, headache, itching were almost completely relieved in all groups.
