Trouble with smell can result from a number of different sources including viral infections, trauma, nasal polyps and nasosinal disease, tumors, and chemical exposure. Sometimes, no cause can be found. You should be evaluated by a physician. A complete history and physical exam is necessary including an exam of your nasal cavity. Smell testing as well as radiological imaging may also be helpful. Good luck.
