My 2yr old how a foul odor coming from her nose that smells like rotting flesh what could be the cause of this?

My 2yr old how a foul odor coming from her nose that smells like rotting flesh what could be the cause of this?

Something's in there: If the smell is that bad, the usual cause is that the child stuck something up her nose (could be a piece of food). Sometimes it's a toy up the nose, such as a bead or a button. A pediatrician, an ear-nose-throat doctor, or an ER doctor can look up the nose to see what's up there. It could also be sinusitis without anything stuck up there, but the odor should not be so bad with just sinusitis. ...Read more

How is going under and coming out of anesthesia?
