what does nasal strep infection smell like?

Nasal strep: In kids and adults strep bacteria can cause a crusty infection around the nostrils (and just about anywhere else). We call that infection 'impetigo', which may also have staph bacteria. In infants strep almost never causes classical 'strep throat', but it can cause a lot of other infections, including nasopharyngitis, which is a foul-smelling, irritating pus drainage from the nostrils.
