Onion smell: This smell can come from the infection. Are you getting better or worse? How is fever, cough fatigue? If you feel the symptoms are worsening then you should be seen. If you are getting better then I would say the odor is a sign you are getting rid of the infection and should resolve as your pneumonia resolves.
