Allergic Rhinitis means you ae allergic or sensitive to something. Allergy testing can help identify what you are allergic to.

The ENT doc probably diagnosed a deviated septum and hoped that by giving you more room on the inside, when the membranes swelled, that you would be more comfortable. You are still early from surgery, but sounds like a trip to the allergist may be helpful.
