Bad smell coming from nose

Hi, I'm currently having this problem for almost 3 months now. At first I thought its just a coincidence that people in front of me feels like they are not comfortable but now I think that the reason is the bad smell from my nose. I'm actually not sure if its from nose but I can't think of any reason, usually even if I'm not talking I can see in their face that they are smelling something bad. I don't think its a body odor, only the people in front of me are the one making faces. I've been ditching my class for almost a month or 2 because of this and currently having a suicidal thought. Its just I've tried everything. I already went to a dentist,gastroenterologist and ENT. I went first to a dentist because of course the most common cause for this is in mouth and then the smell is still there I actually can't smell it so I'm not sure if its gone but the reaction of people are still there same with gastroenterologist. I went there bacause I thought its because of GERD or acid reflux, he gave me PPI's and told me to take it for 2 weeks, and yes after 2 weeks the smell is still there. Lastly I went to ENT. the ENT told me that at the back of my nose it might be blocked with a thick mucus. I actually can't remember how she explained it but I already doubt that it is the cause since I don't have a runny nose and my sense of smell is still there but I'm like "what do I know ? She is a doctor so definitely she is right" so she gave me PPI as well because she also think I have reflux or in this case LPR also nasal spray and antibiotic.  And yes it is still there, I ask her to check inside my nose and throat with endoscopy and there is no mucus, polyps or anything weird and now I don't know what to do, I am 100% certain that it is still there and it is ruining my life. I'm out of option please help me this is so hard. Sorry if there are incorrect grammars but I know you understand what I'm trying to say and thank you for taking your time to read this.
