Nasal spray made from CHILLIES could be the answer to a persistent blocked nose, research suggests 

The spray is designed for people whose nasal stuffiness is not caused by allergies such as hay fever, but rather by non-allergic rhinitis, a condition that affects up to six million people in the UK.

CONCLUSIONS: Increased TRPV4 expression occurred in epithelial cells harvested from patients with AR and epithelial cells stimulated by Th2 cytokines. Decreased junctional protein expression in epithelial cells after the stimulation by house dust mite allergen with TRPV4 agonist indicates a possible role of TRPV4 in the pathogenesis of allergen-induced epithelial barrier disruption in AR.

Biologics have revolutionized medical therapy in the past 2 decades. Allergic Diseases have benefited from this revolution as a variety of biologics have impacted all categories of allergic diseases. Anticytokines directed at type 2 immunity has helped in the treatment of all allergic conditions covered in this issue ranging from Allergic Rhinitis to Asthma to Atopic Dermatitis to Food Allergy and others. Obviously, the ravages of COVID-19 on processes involved in biologic treatment are a consideration, but current thinking suggests such therapies should not be affected by the pandemic.

Conclusion: Adult AR sufferers have a distinct gut microbiome profile, marked by a reduced microbial diversity and altered abundance of certain microbes compared to controls. The results of this study provide evidence that unique gut microbial patterns occur in AR sufferers in adulthood and warrant further examination in the form of mechanistic studies.Int Arch Allergy Immunol

Abstract Pollen from trees, grasses, and weeds can trigger asthma exacerbation in sensitized individuals. However, there are gaps in knowledge about the effects, such as the relative risks from different plant taxa and threshold levels of effect. We aimed to describe the local association between pollen and asthma exacerbation among children in the City of Philadelphia, and to evaluate whether effects are modified by children's characteristics and clinical factors (e.g., child's age, race/ethnicity, comorbidities). We conducted a time-stratified case-crossover study of pediatric (age
