Allergic Rhinitis is a very common disease and many people suffer from it, but it has never had any full-scaled treatment method up until the last few years. In light of this, this Review will cover several different treatment methods of AR and how they have varied over time along with the latest developments in this area (1). There are many pharmacological methods used to treat the disease such as antihistamines, which are usually the first line of treatment. Other sources of treatment include Anti-IgE therapies, Intranasal steroids, Leukotriene Receptor Antagonists, Immunotherapy and Biologics. This paper reviews evidence from the past and more recent articles to make a literature review that helps distinguish between different treatment methods and explains how each method helps treat AR.
