Thank you for your question.

Have you had your nose examined from the inside (rhinoscopy)?

Do you have any other medical problems?

Are you on any medications for anything?

Please let me know.

except from my gp using touch light to see through.i don't feel any pain inside my nose.NO medical problems.NOT on any medications
Expert:  Dr. SH replied 1 year ago.

I think that you should be referred to an ENT specialist and have a rhinoscopy done which will rule out things like:

  • Nasal polyps
  • Hypertrophied turbinates
  • Swollen adenoids

All these can cause one to have bad smell coming from the nose which should be ruled out via further examination.

Let me know if you have more questions.
Please do submit a rating when you are done.
