Many people have been plagued by rhinitis, and expectant mothers during pregnancy are no exception. There have been reports that about 20 % of pregnant women will be plagued by rhinitis. Some expectant mothers even have rhinitis before pregnancy, but they are given rhinitis after pregnancy."Two".Although rhinitis during pregnancy is not a big problem. Most of them will automatically disappear with the end of pregnancy and will not leave any sequelae.Severe even affects sleep.

This is mainly related to hormone changes in the pregnancy.After pregnancy, the level of hormones in expectant mothers is higher than before pregnancy. At this high hormone level, the nasal mucosa is congested, edema, and increased sensitivity, so symptoms such as nasal congestion, sneezing, and runny nose appear.For this pregnancy rhinitis, pregnant mothers do not have to worry too much. Generally, after childbirth, most of them can be relieved as the hormone level decreases.

So, is there some safe and effective prevention and relief methods that allow these pregnant mothers who are plagued by rhinitis to spend this special period comfortably?
