Abstract

Pregnancy rhinitis has gained attention as a defined clinical entity that is recognized increasingly by medical professionals and by the public. It affects one in five pregnant women, and as far as we know, it is not caused by one single factor. Pregnant women should be informed about this cause of nasal congestion, and how to handle it. There is no cure known, but symptomatic treatment may be needed, because impaired nasal breathing can reduce quality of life and possibly affect the fetus. Simple measures, such as elevated head end of the bed, physical exercise, nasal saline washings, and nasal alar dilation can improve nasal breathing.
