Pregnancy rhinitis, is caused by female pregnancy, when a woman is pregnant, the body sex hormone changes, estrogen level increases, causing hypersensitivity reaction of nasal mucosa, leading to small blood vessel dilation, tissue edema, gland secretion exuberant, clinical manifestations for nasal congestion, sneezing, runny nose and other symptoms.
According to relevant statistics, about 20% of pregnant women have the possibility of developing rhinitis during pregnancy, especially in the third month after pregnancy. Once the pathogenic factors are eliminated after delivery, the rhinitis will be cured without sequelae. However, the prevention of rhinitis during pregnancy is still lack of effective measures.
