See dentist: If you have not seen a dentist lately that would be the first thing to do. Periodontal disease is a very common condition in adults, roughly 1 in 3 people have some form of the disease and this can cause the symptoms that you are having. Brushing your tongue or better yet using a tongue scraper can help clean the surface of your tongue which can also be a factor. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Why does my nose react to everything I smell like smoke and other odors then my sinuses play up and I get pain and pressure in my face why is this?

Vasomotor rhinitis: This is a condition in which you have a nose that is very sensitive to temperature changes or strong odors.

How come my nose will always get dirt, like colour yellowish with bad smell? I can feel I got bad smell from my teeth or gum and always get white dirt

Gum disease: One possibility is gum disease. The bacteria of gum disease can cause bad breath. Another possibility with or without gum disease is the bacteria of the throat and nose are producing the odor. Diet can be contributing as well as habits such as smoking. In my office we would treat the gum disease or rule it out. 2nd I would prescribe anti bacterial rinse and xylitol gum, starting w small dose. ...Read more

If someone has great oral hygiene but there is a foul smell coming from their nose and mouth, what could that be from and how would you get rid of it?

May have sinusitis: Bad smells sensed in the nose are usually from a sinus infection. A doctor can look inside the nose to see what is up there, and then prescribe antibiotics as needed. Kids sometimes put a bead, a piece of foam, a button, or other little object up the nostril (the object has to be removed). ...Read more

Why do I smell blood, but not having a nose bleed? I fractured my nose and had an concussion about 4-5 months ago. After my recovery I returned to practice and games. It seems everyday in practice, I get elbowed in the nose but I don't get nosebleeds. Wha

I: I am very concerned about your symptoms. I would like you to see a neurologist and have a complete evaluation of your symptoms. Your symptoms sound somwhat like a concussion, but the duration is very concerning and you need a full neurological evaluation. If you are having this severe of symptoms then you should not be participating in any type of sports until you are cleared.

In addition, you should see your ENT doctor again to re-evaluate your persistent injury. But seeing the neurologist is most important at this time.

If you have worsening headache, visual changes, vomiting, weakness or numbness then you will have to be seen as an emergency. ...Read more
