Question: I keep smelling a
sweet perfumey odor that no one else can smell. It has been happening
for about a week now. I have not changed any soaps or deoderants.
It is driving me crazy. Do you have any idea what I could be experiencing?
Answer: Dear Sue,
Smell disorders include the following:
- Loss of sense of smell
- Sense of smell is reduced
- Odors become distorted
- Perceive smells that are not present
Illness, injury, respiratory infections,
sinus infections, dental problems, hormonal disturbances can all be
causes of smell disorders.
Smell disorders are diagnosed
by a doctor by performing several tests.
