In brief: Change in smell

Sometimes a change in your sense of smell can occur after a viral illness.
It would be a good idea to see an ear nose and throat doctor for an evaluation. The sense of smell and the sense of taste are very closely intertwined and changes in your sense of smell will lead to a change in your sense of taste.
