Yes, these are your possible diagnosis. I would suggest skin prick test 5-6 days you finish your treatment with Zyrtec.

Spirometry test to measure your lung function for a possible obstruction. Also treatment for gastroesophageal reflux for 6 weeks. A sinus X-ray is needed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
