Loss Of Smell

As with all senses in our life, smell is something we rely on as part of enjoyment of our lives, but also can serve to protect us from danger. The smell of burning, the unclean nappy, simple things which help to protect us.

Loss Of Smell Causes

The commonest cause of loss of smell is the simple cold however, this will settle in the majority of cases without need for further resolution.

Loss of smell may also be secondary to other problems within the nose or sinuses. If there is total loss of smell, following careful assessment with a nasal camera your specialist may consider organising a scan to check for the small chance this may represent something more serious, although the chance of this finding anything is small.
