Why do I smell something in my nose ever since had a yeast infection?

Why do I smell something in my nose ever since had a yeast infection?

Sense of smell: After an infection of any kind, the nerve endings could have suffered a minor injury which causes them to sense things a little differently. It could also be that there is residual material from the infection, like debris that could be sitting in the sinuses that you could be smelling.

If a vagina smells like rotten cheese, does that mean she has a yeast infection? I was laying in bed with a girl, and a smell so disturbing hit my nose like a brick in the face. The smell was like rotten cheese times 10. And i still had sex with her. (onl

Don't : Don't know if she had poor hygiene or if there was a vaginal discharge. I havn't heard of a yeast infection smelling like rotten cheese. If she did have a markedly malodorous vaginal discharge and you elected to put your penis in there anyway, have no idea what type of pathogens you may have exposed yourself to.
Just because there is a hole, it doesn't mean you have to poke it. If the woman smelled so bad that you were both overwhelmed and disgusted; this should have raised some big red flags. Or a big red stop sign. If concerned about contracting an std, recommend that you see your doctor. ...Read more
