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

I still have foul odor coming from my nose and my throat. I am on amoxicillin 500mg. I have been onit almost. 2 weeks what do I do. ?
Irrigate: You may be helped with a combination of a decongestant and saline irrigation of the nose with a neti-pot, and sometimes nasal steroid spray. This assumes, however, that the odor is not from your gums. If in the sinuses and this does not go away you need to see an ENT doctor. The odor is decaying material inside the sinuses and needs draining, and perhaps the Amoxicillin needs changing. ...Read more

Remember, always, diagnosis precedes treatment. ...Read more
It is long time more than 2 yeats that i habe strange odor in my nose. I smell it most of the time and cannot do anything about that. Any idea?
Bad odor: Try irrigating out the nose. Is there any colored drainage to suggest an infection? If so you will need an antibiotic for 3 to 4 wks. If not, distorted smells need to be worked up by the ENT locally. He or she will look up your nose to check it then order a ct with contrast to rule out anything in the olfactory areas of the brain. Good luck. ...Read more
