  4. Subjects will be eligible to participate if: a) Their total rTNSS is at least 6; b) Reflective rating for "nasal congestion/stuffy nose" is a score of >2 at Visit 1; c) Reflective score of >2 for at least one (1) of the remaining three (3) allergic rhinitis symptoms.
  5. A history (2 or more seasons) of seasonal allergy to at least one allergen known to be present during the study season, confirmed by a skin prick test. (A documented positive skin test within the previous 12 months is acceptable.)

  4. A total score of less than 6 on the rTNSS or a score less than 2 for "nasal congestion" or a score less than 2 for all of the remaining 3 symptoms.
  5. Subject has any condition or abnormality of the upper airway (ex: nasal polyps, obstruction, recent nasal surgery, structural abnormality, rhinitis medicamentosa, etc.) that, in the opinion of the Investigator, could interfere with administration of the product, evaluation of the subject's condition, or other aspect of the trial.
