Running nose and sneezing

Patient: I develop a running nose and constant sneezing after a session of playing basketball. i’ve never had any issues with allergies, nor have i been told i even had any allergies. What could be the problem?

 

 

Symptoms: Constant sneezing, running nose

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Thanks for the query.A running nose immediately after basketball with sneezing points out towards allergic rhinitis. It could be triggered by the dust exposure while playing that is causing this allergy. You will have to keep your nose and mouth covered by a mask while playing to prevent such exposure.Hope this helped.Regards
