Typically, if taste and smell are affected by Covid, they will return but it does take a while. Other symptoms seem to normalize faster than the return of taste and smell. There is no treatment that will allow taste and small to return faster, unfortunately. There is no set time period in which they return-it really does vary from person to person. Hopefully, yours will return soon. Good luck!
