The answer is E, and the winners are Collins and O’can. Details below
Management of allergic rhinitis includes the use of antihistamines, intranasal
corticosteroids and nasal decongestants. Non-sedating antihistamines such as
levocetirizine are preferred in mild-to-moderate and intermittent symptoms.
Promethazine and diphendyramine are sedating antihistamines. Oxymetazo￾line is a nasal decongestant that is available for topical administration. Topical
administration of sympathomimetic agents provides relief from nasal obstruc￾tion but because of the onset of rebound congestion their use should be limited
to 1 week.
