In brief: Poor airflow
Some ways that this could happen include having persistent congestion or nasal polyps that could interfere with airflow in your nose, even after recovering from a sinus infection.
You may need a ct scan or a rhinoscopy to better understand why this would happen. Also be aware that some antibiotics like biaxin (clarithromycin) can alter your sense of taste temporarily.
