My mother has been complaining of a bad smell coming from her nose for quite sometime now. I am hoping you can help me out. The docs have checked her nose and nothing shows as being abnormal. She does have allergies. She says she smells rotten fish or blood. For awhile she thought she smelled bad but its not her.
Hi - is there any reason to think she may have regurgitated in her sleep? Ask her if it ever smells a bit like vomit? Gross i KNOW - but it's something I go through so thought I'd ask. I wish you both well. Jan
I have it too, and it's terrible. It gets worse when I have pain in my right palate and my molar gets loose. I understand these are symptoms of peridontal disease but I can't find anything linking peridontal disease to sinusitis. I took a full course of flagyl and the smell went away for about a month, but its has recently returned. It's as people describe; there's an intermittent strong odor of dead cat or similar rotting flesh smell. How can there be no permanent solution for this?
