What is the “Allergic Salute”?

November 2020

Filed under: Uncategorized — drfranklin @ 1:20 pm

A nasal crease or linea nasalis often results from an “allergic salute” performed most often by people who repeatedly rub their nose in an upward motion because of chronic nasal itching due to nasal airway issues like allergies. Nasal airway issues (which can be Allergies AND/OR nasal airway obstructions such as enlarged tonsils,adenoids, etc.) are the Primary cause of Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders and is why Dr. Honor Franklin of Honor Franklin Myofunctional & Speech Clinic refers all patients to an Allergist and ENT on her team who understand Orofacial Myofunctional Disorders BEFORE she ever initiates any therapy with them and, if found to have allergies, they must be compliant with the allergist’s recommendations in order to stay in therapy.
