As an Allergisit/Immunologist I would skin test someone showing symptoms of AR, especially if they work in landscaping with symptoms worse after work, while starting an intranasal steroid concurrently. Also, I've never seen or heard of the association of cobblestoning in the nasal mucosa (only posterior oral pharynx).
