Symptoms of allergic rhinitis (allergies) include:

  • nasal congestion
  • sore throat
  • coughing
  • sneezing
  • runny nose
  • headache

Allergic rhinitis is sometimes associated with itchy, watery eyes (allergic conjunctivitis) and wheezing and coughing (asthma). These symptoms - especially nasal congestion - can lead to impaired sleep, which can result in significant daytime sleepiness and fatigue.
