foul smell in right nostril

hi, ive had this foul smell coming from my right nostril for about a year now. at the same time, mucus between my nose and throat have been thick and unmovable, at times gagging me. I've have tried nasal sprays and decongestants, but the effects were minimal and temporary. A week ago, I started suffering from symtoms (symptoms) od a cold, including a runny nose. When i blow out my nose, the mucus from my right nostril is thick, greenish and extremely smelly, however, the mucus from the left is normal watery and transparent. The foul smell in my nose has become worse with the onset of the runny nose, and im practically living with the stink 24/7. At times when i manage to force the mucus down my throat, i can taste its bitterness and thickness. This is still on-going, anyone can help??

It truly sounds like you have had a bad sinus infection for some time now. you'll need really strong antibiotics and possibly a dose of prednisone (maybe not the antibiotics may be enough) You should not have to live like this. Go to your Dr for the antibiotic rx asap!

well i went for my ENT apptment today, they did a probe and found some nasal polyps adjacent to my right mid meatus, they think i may have fungal sinusitis, so they referred me to another clinic to do a CT scan, and perhaps surgery to remove the polyps. this is where the smell is coming from...

I too have had the same problem with my nose  - has your problem resolved with treatment ? Was it polyps in the end ? I hae been to an ENT 3 years ago - problem  still there - so I guess I should persue this problem . and seek a resolution. Look forward to  hearing about your final outcome. Paula
