Nose/sinus: Could be a sinus infection. Try irrigating your nose with salt water (nasal saline irrigation) available over the counter. If this does not help, you should see your doctor to make sure there is no infection requiring antibiotics. There are also other, rare, weird causes of smells (temporal lobe seizures) that require evaluation by a doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

First : First of all, you need to find out if the man currently has active tuberculosis (latent tuberculosis is not contagious unless it become active) and if he is on treatment (most people are no longer contagious after a few weeks of antibiotics). If he does have active tuberculosis and is not on therapy (or has only just started therapy), then call your doctor. You should see your doctor and have them place a PPD test. This is a test where they place a bubble of fluid containing tuberculosis proteins under the skin of your arm. You will be checked in 48 hours and if your immune system reacts by causing swelling and redness, then you have been exposed and will need a chest x-ray and medication. Your doctor may want to repeat the PPD test in a few weeks after the first if the first one is negative just to make sure the first one wasn't done too early. Since tuberculosis can only live for a few hours outside of the body, there's no special sanitation you need to do to your car's interior. However since it can live for a few hours outside of the body, you need to warn anyone else that was in your car after the infected man that they might be exposed. Below i attached a link with information on tuberculosis from the national institute of health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
