cant smell

Last 4-5 years back itself i lost my ability to smell anything.i have consulted many doctors,even Ayurveda,Homeopathy,english medicines.But no result it gave.some steroids given,that time i can smell everything.but doctor said that it is not good to take more.so now iam taking some allergic medicines(tablet and spray)

Anybody can suggest what will be the reason and how to treat it.

Hello and hope you are doing well.

There are several reasons why you may have a loss of smell/taste.  The most common reason is nasal obstruction which can be determined by examination by an ENT.  He/she may want to examine you with a scope inside of the nose to make this determination.  Also, viral illnesses and head trauma have also been known to cause this problem.  But, sometimes we never know why a particular person develops this problem.  

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
