Perhaps it is the bacteria in the sinuses causing that odor. I know from personal experience that I have a foul odor coming out of my nose whenever I have a bad infection of my sinuses. It is good that you are on antibiotics and are doing rinses, that should help you and hopefully the infection will go away soon along with that smell. If it continues, then you should see your doc again as it could be a bacteria that needs a different antibiotic to treat it.
I used to have chronic sinus infections and that infection has the worst odor in the world at the time you have it..i smelled it, tasted it ..not sure if it came from my nose or not but very well could have been.
get well, meg
I have the same problem the thing is that I can't smell my odor I just see peoples faces and that's how I know I got this problem I whent to the doc. He gave me antibiotic and nasal spray...... hopefully it help me........
NASAL ODOR: I FOUND A CURE! at least for me!!!!!
Sorry for the wrong english, because I'm from Brazil and do not speak much english.
After six months looking for several doctors and trying everything I could heal myself taking ciprofloxacin 500 mg twice daily for 20 days and I used an antibacterial ointment in the nostrils. Remembering that you can not take the medicine with dairy products for at least 2 hours. Ideally, everything should be totally excluded from milk during these 20 days.
I'm no doctor and do not advise taking the drugs without medical consultation. But it worked for me.... I was desperate and had tried everything.
Two weeks ago I finished the medicine, I hope do not come back this evil smell !!!
Did it cure your bad smell?
i have never had this kind of problem in my life.. but recently and all of the sudden i experienced a smell in my right nostril that can only be described as septic. after doing some holistic research.. i had decided to address the problem as a yeast type infection because of its character. yeast infections can effect the whole of your body.. but are usually only of notice in a couple places. hopefully i dont have to expand on that fact.. lol.. anyway, that being said, my research provided me with info that proved to be a cure for females with yeast infections and so i applied the same remedy to the nasal passages of my nose. it worked! so what you may ask was the remedy? it was garlic. often pharmaceutical companies would discourage any products that did not feed the till.. but FYI.. administering garlic oil from minced garlic or in raw form with a cue tip into the nostril cavity seemed to kill the odor causing smell in a couple days completely. i know that some may question.. what would be worse the garlic smell or the odor.. however, you can stop the treatments when you notice your problem has subsided.. try this out and see if it works for you .. i am also of the opinion that it could not hurt to supplement your diet with additional garlic oil vitamins to fully attack this problem.. also, just a note that because antibiotics have been known to bring on and worsen yeast infections, i avoided this treatment, as it seems that the yeast infections in women seem to return worse thatn before after a short time. i hope this is of help to you all ....
