Allergic rhinitis affects up to 30% of the population yet there is evidence that it is under treated and misdiagnosed. Allergy symptoms closely mimic other common illnesses and most medication used to treat seasonal allergies is now available over the counter. This shift in therapy means that patients are now self-medicating with little knowledge of what they are actually treating. Therefore this project aims to clear common misconceptions that prevail in the general population of Vermont as well as provide some guidance on the types of medications used to treat seasonal allergies.
