Asthma: No your symptoms are not dueto asthma. Rather you may have allergic rhinitis especially with swollen turbinates.

See an allergist if you have SOB also. Allergic rhinitis alone does not cause SOB.

Maybe allergies: Allergies with post nasal drip can cause this. Also, a sinus infection may present that way. Asthma is less likely.
