Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
So the lost of taste sensation has happened three months back?
Or just now?
A couple of months back
Did you only have an ear infection or did you also had a cold or flu as well in the recent past?
It was just an ear infection but I am just getting over a cold now and it seems to have got worse
Actually the reason why I asked about the cold is because the sense of smell and taste are both connected. When one has a cold the olfactory cells (the cells that sense smells of various things) located in those upper part of the nose may be injured which can either lead to diminished sense of smell as well as taste
This can take months to return back to normal.
The process of healing of these cells is rather slow.
Are you with me?
Yes, I do understand. So I should see an improvement as the weeks go by?. Would there come a time when I should certainly have my taste back again or could I never get it back?
Yes most likely you will have your sensation back.
You will see improvement as weeks go by
