CASE STUDY – ALLERGIC RHINITIS.PurposeThe purpose of this assignment is to apply hypersensitivity pathophysiological concepts to explain assessment findings of a patient with ALLERGIC RHINITIS. Examine all aspects of the patient’s assessment including: Chief Complaint (CC), History of Present Illness (HPI), Past Medical History (PMH), Family History (FH), Social History (SH), Review of Systems (ROS), and Medications and then answer the questions that follow..Requirements:1.    You must use at least one scholarly reference to provide pathophysiology statements.

The guideline can be found at the following web address: You may also use a medication administration reference such as Epocrates to provide medication names..Case Study ScenarioA 35-year-old woman presents to the primary care office with a history of nasal congestion that has worsened over time and recurrent sinus infections.
