What Is Chronic Rhinitis?
Chronic rhinitis is persistent inflammation of the tissues lining the nose, resulting in symptoms such as a constant runny nose, post-nasal drip, congestion, coughing, nasal itching, and sneezing. While symptoms may be related to allergies, symptoms from chronic rhinitis may occur all year.
This challenging condition can negatively impact your life in countless ways. And trying to find an effective treatment can be frustrating. Like many, you may manage your symptoms using medications and sprays. Unfortunately, these treatments only provide temporary relief. It’s only when the root cause of your rhinitis is addressed that you can expect to find real, lasting relief. Thankfully, nonsurgical RhinAer treatment at Cherry Creek Face and Skin may be able to help you say goodbye to a runny nose and congestion that interferes with life.
What Is RhinAer Treatment?
If the symptoms above sound familiar, you may be one of the millions of people living with chronic rhinitis. Until now, treatment often meant managing symptoms with medications and sprays.
For many patients, the markers of chronic rhinitis may be caused by abnormal signals in the nose. Now, Dr. Raj TerKonda and the expert team at Cherry Creek Face and Skin can offer you noninvasive, radiofrequency (RF) energy-powered RhinAer to disrupt these signals and provide lasting relief. RhinAer treatments use a small wand inserted into the nostril to counteract the overactive nerves that help produce mucus and minimize the inflammation that causes congestion. There is no downtime needed after RhinAer, and most patients typically return to normal activities on the same day.
In a clinical study, patients treated with RhinAer were shown to experience lasting relief of chronic rhinitis symptoms, including runny nose, post-nasal drip, and chronic cough. Additionally, these individuals reported a significant boost in quality of life.
"I am thankful for the excellent care Dr. Raj Terkonda provided me. I am very blessed to find a doctor who truly cares, who is very knowledgeable and professional. Thank you sir for the great care and surgery you performed on me. I can breathe now. I can sleep, and I can smell and taste. Yay! I strongly recommend him to friends, family or anyone who is in need of a doctor who cares and who strives in excellence!"- Y.L. / Google / Apr 14, 2023
"Dr. Raj Terkonda and his staff gave us a perfect service and outcome for a deviated septum. The doctor was very thorough in diagnosis, treatment plan, and instructions. The office staff did all of the work to ensure that our procedure and pre-ops were pre-authorized by Aetna and scheduled quickly. We wished we hadn't deferred this procedure for so long, but waiting for the right doctor and team is everything!"- S.C. / Google / Apr 07, 2023
"Dr TerKonda went above and beyond with my surgery to repair a deviated septum, and I can breathe much more clearly now. The admin side of the office has a few things to sort out with duplicate billing and wait communication issues, but I highly recommend the medical care/treatment."- I.T. / Google / Mar 20, 2023
"Dr. TerKonda fixed my deviated septum and excess tissue. Surgery was a success and he and his team are very caring every step of the way."- K. / Google / Dec 22, 2022
"I just had a septoplasty and nasal valve repair. I appreciate that Dr. Terkonda took his time to make sure that I was safe to have surgery. The medication he prescribed for the nasal drip was better than four years of receiving allergy shots. Nasal drip has gotten far better postop, but every now and then I still use the medication. I cannot believe this is how everyone else breathes and smells! Are you kidding me? Absolutely amazing."- H.L. / Google / Sep 16, 2022
