How did you make this work:
Allergic rhinitis is inflammation of the inside of the nose caused by an allergen. It typically causes cold-like symptoms, but for some people, symptoms can be severe and persistent, interfering with everyday life. My experience inspires this image. Whenever I had difficulty falling asleep because of the allergy, I felt all viruses and allergens were landing on my bed and sleeping with me.
