About Nasal Allergies
One of the most prevalent chronic diseases in the U.S., nasal allergies, also known as allergic rhinitis, affect up to 40 million people annually, including 10 to 30 percent of adults and up to 40 percent of children.
Nasal allergies refer to inflammation of the lining of the nose. Inflammation can be caused by allergies to pollen, animal dander, house dust mite or mold spores. People with nasal allergies tend to have stuffy, runny, and itchy noses, may sneeze a lot, or have red, itchy, watery eyes. Some people with nasal allergies suffer from seasonal allergies (or hay fever), while others have year-round allergies. Seasonal allergies are usually triggered by pollens, and as the name implies, occur during certain seasons and last a few weeks to a few months. Year-round allergy symptoms are triggered by dust mites, animal dander or mold.
Veramyst Nasal Spray treats seasonal and year-round nasal allergy symptoms in adults and children 2 years and older.
For seasonal allergies, Veramyst helps patients twelve years and older treat multiple symptoms, such as sneezing, congestion, itchy and runny nose, and red, itchy and watery eyes with one medicine. For year-round allergies, Veramyst treats only nasal symptoms, including sneezing, congestion and itchy and runny nose.
For patients twelve years and older with seasonal allergies, Veramyst has also demonstrated improvement in overall allergy-related quality of life. However, for patients with year-round allergies, similar benefit has not been established.
