In brief: Change in Taste

A change in the sensation of the throat, nose, and chest can occur with a recent viral infection, such as influenza or parainfluenza.
Try using saline nasal rinses and oral gargles, 1/4 tsp/16 ounces. Usually, the sensation passes over time. Go see your doctor for an exam.
