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