Allergic rhinitis is a symptom complex that consists of paroxysms of sneezing; itching of the eyes, nose, and palate; rhinorrhea; and nasal obstruction. It is often associated with post-nasal drip, cough, irritability, and fatigue. This patient clearly has allergic rhinitis; however, this is not a cause of her wheezing and shortness of breath.
