DNS (deviated nasal septum) and allergies are two different things. Only if you have symptoms of nose block and headache, then surgery for DNS will be helpful. For allergic rhinitis, you should start nasal spray having decongestant and steroid combination, and that will help you. Also, there are a few tests, which will help you to know about your allergies. But, they are not absolute confirmatory tests.
Thank you for the quick reply. One more thing I forgot to mention is that I am getting mucus in my throat if I eat anything. It is more after having lunch and dinner. In the morning, my nose has mucus.I have attached the scanned PNS report. Is this due to DNS or allergic rhinitis?
If you have mucus in your throat, which is trickling down from your sinuses, then it is because of sinus and nose infection. You have mild sinusitis, which can go with the use of the spray as I mentioned before. I would suggest you the following treatment. Consult your doctor, discuss with him or her and take medicine with consent. Antibiotics preferably Amoxiclav (Amoxicillin and Clavulanic acid) 1 g twice daily for a week, antacid for a week and anti-inflammatory enzymes twice daily for five days. A combination of a spray having steroid and decongestant twice daily on both nostrils for two weeks and then only once for another two weeks. Regular steam inhalation would help to cure infection as well as allergy which is leading to sinusitis.
