What should I do if I get anosmia?'
Hello, I am 23 years old. I am suffering from anosmia as post covid effect. I got covid. Now I am fully recovered. How to manage anosmia? It is quite a concern for me. I can not get any flavor of any kind of food. Please help.
@samik Treatment depends on the cause. If the loss of smell occurs with a cold, allergy, or sinus infection, it typically will clear up on its own in a few days. You should consult your doctor if the anosmia doesn’t clear up once the cold or allergy symptoms have subsided.
Treatments that may help resolve anosmia caused by nasal irritation include:
steroid nasal sprays
antibiotics, for bacterial infections
reducing exposure to nasal irritants and allergens
cessation of smoking
Loss of smell caused by nasal obstruction can be treated by removing whatever is obstructing your nasal passage. This removal may involve a procedure to remove nasal polyps, straighten the nasal septum, or clear out the sinuses.
