In brief: Deviated septum

This can only be differentiated by physical examination.
Be sure to have your nose evaluated by a board certified otolaryngologist.

Any of those things could cause snoring.
Make sure you have your allergies well treated. A sleep study would help you to rule out sleep apnea as a cause. If the deviated septum is severe enough, you might need surgery by an ENT surgeon to relieve the snoring.
